Tom Venetis Hired As Executive Director At ABC

There’s been a management change at Allied Buying Corp. Tom Venetis, a 24-year veteran of Edward Don & Co., has joined the buying group as its incoming executive director. He will succeed Tom Wilhelm, who will retire at the end of this year.

Venetis joins Lombard, Ill.-based ABC from Don, where he most recently served as director of merchandising and marketing. “Tom’s skill set of program and product management, marketing communications, meeting planning and selling expertise is an excellent match for ABC’s needs,” stated ABC Pres. Marty Monnat.  “We are all thrilled to have him on board."

Wilhelm, who will be available to ABC on an as-needed consulting basis through 2016, added, “Tom’s depth of industry knowledge and experience perfectly fits the needs of the organization going forward. We are confident that he is absolutely the right person to take us to the next level. His existing relationships with our approved suppliers and overall knowledge of the foodservice equipment and supply dealer community and dealer-based distribution will prove to be a huge asset to the group.”

ABC is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year as a member-owned and managed buying and marketing group of independent foodservice equipment and supply dealers.
