Meet our Director of Sales, Food, Beverage & Nutrition, Bob Wills. Bob has been on the Viachem team since his start in 2008. He moved to Dallas on a two weeks notice to work at Viachem right out of college, University of Georgia, where he graduated with a BS in Biology.
His first night on the town with some friends led to quite the unintentional shoulder bump walking up the stairs of what used to be known as the Black Friar on McKinney Avenue. Bob’s claim to fame happened that night: “Both myself and the other gentleman stumbled and my buddy comes over to me and says, ‘You just bumped into Mark Cuban.’”
Outside of work he loves spending time with his wife and three daughters. You can catch him on most weekends playing golf, cheering on University of Georgia Athletics, hunting or doing yard work under the blue sky–blue will always be his favorite color.
In his current role, Bob’s responsibilities include managing all aspects of the Food, Beverage and Nutrition Market segments, leading our sales and marketing team, coordinating sales efforts and pursuing opportunities for growth on the producer and end-user level. His favorite part about the job is the opportunity to connect with people from all over the U.S. and the world, responsibly supplying raw materials that best fit partners’ supply chain needs.
“I am a people person, and it’s a joy to meet new people from all walks of life along with being an integral part of the supply chain for consumer goods,” Bob said.
Bob has supported Viachem’s growth through the years and continuously adds value with his innovative ideas. We are thankful to have him on the team, and for his nearly 12 years being part of the Viachem family.
