Quinn Snacks, a Boulder, CO-based natural foods company dedicated to producing reimagined, classic snacks with a focus on ingredient transparency, announced that it has named Al Matulis as the Company’s vice president of sales.
Quinn Snacks is known for its award-winning microwave popcorn and gluten free pretzels—all made with real ingredients that can be traced to the source as a part of the Company’s Farm-to-Bag ingredient transparency promise. Mr. Matulis will focus on expanding the brand across all channels and accounts.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Al to the Quinn team,” said Kristy Lewis, founder of Quinn Snacks. “His experience with brands in the snack and popcorn categories will be a tremendous asset as we focus on accelerating sales and building out our growing sales organization here at Quinn Snacks.”
“As a foodie and a snack fan, I am particularly excited to help Quinn Snacks expand their brand beyond clean microwave popcorn into gluten free, Whole Grain Pretzels,” said Mr. Matulis. “This new category offers us an opportunity to introduce consumers to the brand in multiple channels, with the latest innovation in filled pretzels already providing tremendous opportunities for growth.”
Al joins Quinn Snacks as VP of sales from his most recent role as VP of sales at Chicago Custom Foods, a private equity owned specialty foods company focused on seasonings in both the popcorn and hot cereal category. Prior to his tenure at Chicago Custom Foods, he spent five years with the Kellogg Company running retail and account teams on both the Snacks and Morning Foods businesses in the Eastern Region.
After completing his MBA in Finance at University of Denver, Al worked at Advantage Sales & Marketing. He began his career with the Kimberly Clark Corporation after completing his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University.
