Jodi Baron recently left her position as national sales manager for vending at Schwan Food Co. to become director of vend sales at Mama Rosa’s LLC, a newly-created position.

Baron, who was at Schwan Food Co. for about 13 years, said she has established a nationwide broker network for Mama Rosa’s consisting of the following brokers:

Burdette Beckmann Inc., Hollywood, Fla.; Rasmussen & Associates Inc., Minneapolis, Minn.; Lichtman & Associates Inc., Libertyville, Ill.; Vend Marketing Inc., Overland Park, Kan.; Statewide Brokerage, Twinsburg, Ohio; Quality Brokerage, Turnersville, N.J.; and T.A.
