Starting at age 19, Vicki has spent almost three decades in the grocery business. Her experience includes 12 years in the food brokerage industry and more than 20 years of bakery/deli experience. Some of Vicki’s primary responsibilities at Mountain Creek Marketing are to check stores daily to make sure product is in stock, in date, and ready for the customer. Startups, new product roll-outs and store grand openings are her specialties.
She is known for her “finishing school” which trains in-store staff in the finishing touches required by manufacturer specs on such products as caramel apples and fruit tarts. Other strengths include merchandising and building large displays.
When asked her thoughts on her lengthy career she said, “I’ve been in this business long enough to build a very strong trustworthy relationship with stores and clients. It’s nice to walk in the door knowing your clients are happy to see you. And it’s rewarding when you can put a smile on someone’s face.”
Vicki balances her life by spending her time off with her husband, dog, (a mati-poo named Beamer) and enjoying the outdoors or cheering on one of her favorite teams at a sporting event.
