    Peter, I wish you health and happiness in retirement. David, welcome to Bristol Associates! I’m a natural foods sales executive with 20+ years pioneering growth for leading brands, including Kashi, Terra Chips, Hain-Celestial, Earnest Eats and Arctic Zero. I’d love to personally send you my resume, and schedule a short call for introductions – would you kindly recommend a day/time within the next couple weeks that’s convenient for you? I appreciate your reply and look forward to connecting live.
