As part of an effort to forge deeper connections with customers, Rich Products Corp. has created a new leadership position, SVP, customer experience, and named Ted Rich to take on the role. Rich was most recently managing director of the company’s Europe/Middle East region.

Earlier in his career, Rich, son of Bob Rich Jr., Rich’s chairman, was the company’s VP of international marketing and business development, and then president of the foodservice division. His roles have also included regional sales manager in foodservice, strategic sourcing manager in procurement, and VP for toppings and icings in North America.
Before joining Rich’s in 1995, Ted Rich worked for the NBA’s Seattle Supersonics as a sales manager. He also has held positions with Northwest Parent Publishing, in Seattle, and the Buffalo-based Travers-Schutte & Co. advertising agency.
