Food Concepts Inc. Promotes Three

MIDDLETON, Wis. — Food Concepts Inc. (FCI) has announced several changes in its management team.

“These changes position us well to continue our rapid growth. We design, build and fulfill best-in-class branded solutions for our clients, and I am excited about our opportunities to help our clients continue to stand out,” said Brad Duesler, president of FCI.

Tom Bush has been promoted to executive vice president with responsibility for sales and marketing. Bush is a senior food, consumer products and manufacturing executive with decades of experience in operations, finance, sales and marketing in Fortune 500 companies as well as startup firms.

“Tom has many years in leadership roles with food manufacturers, and brings a wealth of knowledge to our business development efforts and our client base,” said Duesler. “We look forward to accelerating our growth with his efforts.”

Alex Kulis has been promoted to account manager and will lead all Circle K-related projects. Kulis has been responsible for a portion of Circle K’s initiatives over the past several months and will assume primary responsibility following the retirement of Julie Pedretti after 23 years with FCI.

Kulis has a degree in architecture and has held roles coordinating with clients on many architectural and graphic design projects. He also has experience in the foodservice industry.

“Alex has a distinguished career involving interior environment development,” said Duesler. “His clients speak highly of him because they have both a great experience and get on-target solutions. We’re delighted to move him up in our organization.”

Brittney Gittus has been promoted to a newly created role of associate account manager and will assist Kulis in executing projects related to Circle K. Gittus was formerly a customer service representative at FCI.

“Brittney has distinguished herself as a CSR. She is dedicated and has a great working relationship with our clients,” said Duesler.
