Industry veteran will help lead SourceOne to future growth
CHICAGO, IL – Jesse R. Lopez, president and CEO of SourceOne Global Partners, has announced the key appointment of industry veteran Richard Peterson as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Calling Peterson an “ambassador and elder statesman” in the nutraceutical industry, Lopez asserts that Peterson’s experience and leadership in sales, marketing and business development for multinational organizations, both domestically and internationally, will further enable the company to respond swiftly to the growing needs of its global partners and customers.
“Peterson’s leadership and skilled sales force development is a great asset to our growing sales organization. He also has a demonstrated track record of customer service and satisfaction that is one of the cornerstones of SourceOne’s philosophy,” Lopez says.
Prior to joining the nutraceutical industry in 1985 to establish Danochemo USA Inc. as Vice President and General Manager, Rick Peterson held various sales and marketing management positions with Fortune 500 food companies between 1969 and 1984. While at Danochemo, Peterson positioned this company to become one of the leading manufacturers and marketers of fat-soluble vitamins, forging numerous strategic relationships with leading nutritional companies. He went on to establish BioDar USA and introduced its newest technologies to the U.S. marketplace. He then joined Seltzer Chemicals in 1998 as Business Manager for Human Nutrition before joining SourceOne Global Partners.
“SourceOne is the perfect company for me to bring the international sales and marketing experience that I gained while successfully managing Danochemo USA and BioDar USA,” Peterson says. SourceOne’s commitment to marketing products that have proven scientific support and targeting health issues of international concern is something that I am committed to as well. I look forward to taking this company to its next level of expansion.”
