Meet Your Salesperson: Jeremy Cockerham

For Jeremy Cockerham, food is a way of life. Although his relationship with the foodservice industry has changed over the years, his passion for serving others has not. It takes a chef to understand a chef and the trials and tribulations they go through, and Cockerham is that person. His career as a chef made him an expert in all things foodservice related and allowed him to understand the importance of serving great food and great service. Today, as a salesperson with Bargreen Ellingson Cockerham remains in an industry that he loves and more importantly, has the opportunity to continue to serve his customers with not food but knowledge - something that comes as naturally to him as cooking.
