Mingle: Milt Zimmerman, Presence Marketing

February 7, 2020 @ 8:30 am 10:00 am

Join us for the February 7 Friday Morning Mingle

Guest speaker is Milt Zimmerman, Senior Vice President of Sales, Presence Marketing

Admission: Free, no pre-registration needed

Presence Marketing, a co-founder of Naturally Chicago, pioneered as a broker for Good Food products when it was founded by CEO Bill Weiland and COO Christine Tzumas in 1990. Milt Zimmerman became a partner five years later, and this leadership team has remained intact as Presence — like the consumer market for Good Food and Natural Products — has enjoyed exponential growth.

Milt will present at the February 7 Friday Morning Mingle, with a focus on how early-stage entrepreneurs can gain the attention of brokers, and obtain their crucial assistance getting on store shelves in an increasing crowded and competitive marketplace. He will also highlight Presence’s remarkable record at spotting the next big trends in consumer demand.

Milt is a 30+ year veteran of the Natural Products Industry. He got his start in food marketing when he joined a Chicago-based beverage company in 1986 and was soon appointed their National Sales Manager, serving in that capacity for eight years. A couple years stint working for a leading natural snack food manufacturer “seasoned” Milton and prepared him for his true calling – being a broker. Milt has built great friendships throughout the industry, and is proud of his relationships with retailers and manufacturers from coast to coast.

Great networking, fun conversation and free coffee before and after the presentation, too. Choose to schmooze with Naturally Chicago!
