Marin French Cheese is pleased to announce the appointment of Maxx Sherman as company president, with responsibility for sales, marketing, new product development and all operational activities. Sherman has 30 years of experience in the specialty food industry. When he joined Marin French in September of 2004, Sherman created the national sales and marketing department. Since then, sales have increased over 50%. During the past six years the company has secured strong positions in more than 30 states as well as numerous countries in Asia.
Maxx Sherman believes that the goal of Marin French is to deliver the best quality American soft-ripened cheese to consumers. “There are millions of new customers who are looking for quality American cheese. Many still do not know we exist and why our cheese is so exceptional. We will find them and help them discover the delicious flavors of the Rouge et Noir brand.”
Along with Sherman’s new role as president; Marin French has hired Suzanne Reifers to take over the position of National Sales and Marketing Manager. Suzanne was formerly the Marketing & Brand Manager for Laura Chenel’s Chevre. Reifers has extensive distribution and retail experience. She also has a strong background in culinary arts and has worked for many years with food service customers.
Other key members of the Marin French team are cheese-maker Alex Borgo, who brings a wealth of production experience from stints in Switzerland and Canada, as well as long-time Marin French veterans operations manager Cheri Katen and shipping manager Kathy Bordessa. Together, Katen and Bordessa have more than 50 years of experience with Marin French Cheese.
