“I have primarily worked on the supplier side of FMCG with much of my experience in leading and developing large sales and merchandising teams,” Street said.

“I have managed accounts across corporate grocery and independent grocery as well as having extensive knowledge of the route channel. This provides me with a strong feel for what clients want across multi channels.”
