Do Good Foods hires former Baldor Specialty Foods exec to lead sales

Do Good Foods of Bedminster on Wednesday announced that Thomas McQuillan is joining the company as its new chief sales officer, effective Friday.

Do Good Foods’ current CSO, Bob Davenport, has been instrumental in developing several strategic relationships and helping Do Good Foods establish the company’s sales channel. Davenport will work closely with McQuillan throughout the transition period.

McQuillan joins Do Good Foods from Baldor Specialty Foods, a Northeast U.S. food processor and distributor, where he served as the vice president of sales and a leadership team member. Previously, at Baldor, he held roles such as vice president of strategy, culture and sustainability and director of food service sales and sustainability.

“McQuillan’s vast experience in the food space and passion for fighting climate change and working towards a more sustainable future makes him a seamless addition to our team,” said Justin Kamine, co-CEO of Do Good Foods. “Bob has been a tremendous asset helping us get this journey started and we’re excited to continue this momentum with Thomas’ support.”

Along with his industry experience, McQuillan brings a successful track record of working in an entrepreneurial environment, as well as experience in the graduate business programs at Temple University in Philadelphia and St. John’s University in Rome.

McQuillan has a passion for sustainability, particularly related to the use of food to create economic value and reduce the harmful impacts of wasted food on the environment. On this topic, his work has appeared in numerous articles, and he is a respected thought leader of regenerative and sustainable food systems having participated in White House waste reduction meetings.

“Eliminating food waste is an essential step needed to fight climate change,” McQuillan said. “Joining as part of a first-of-its kind solution that addresses food waste at this scale is an honor. I am proud to be supporting a company committed to doing good for people and the planet.”
