NEW BEDFORD, MA – Sid Wainer & Son® is excited to announce the appointment of Allie Wainer to the newly created role of Executive Vice President. Allie, 4th generation family member, has been involved with the business since she could walk. Her entire life family dinners revolved around tasting and discussing the new and interesting foods her father, Dr. Henry B. Wainer, current owner and president, would source from around the world.

A graduate of the School of Hospitality at Boston University, Allie worked in various areas within the food and hospitality industry. This included jobs and internships with major hotels, caterers, event planners, local restaurants, and specialty food shops. “I wanted to experiment with different aspects of the business to get a sense of the big picture,” says Allie.

Allie formally joined the Sid Wainer & Son® team in 2012 as the Director of Customer Relations. In that role she was responsible for ensuring all departments within the company were connected and the communication between them and their customers is strong. She assumed the role of President of South Coast Farms, a Sid Wainer & Son® company in 2014. In her new role, Allie Wainer will be shaping the future direction of the 101 year old company her great grandfather founded.

“I naturally inherited a passion for food and our family business” says Allie. “In a 24 hour, 7 days a week distribution business, there is never a dull moment. I love the challenge and we have an incredible team. Seeing our 101 year old company move into the future progressively is so exciting.”
