Walt Tullis is President of Honor Foods, a $200M foodservice redistribution company (a Burris Logistics Company) in Philadelphia, PA. As a redistributor, Honor Foods buys food & beverages from manufacturers and sells to foodservice distributors throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S.
Prior to joining Honor in 2012, Walt spent nearly 25 years with the Campbell Soup Company in several retail marketing assignments on the Mrs. Paul’s and Swanson brands before moving into the Foodservice Division as Director of Marketing for the Soups, Entrees, Beverages, and Sauces product categories. He eventually transitioned to Foodservice Sales leading the Chain Restaurant Team before becoming VP Sales for the division.
Before Campbell’s, Walt spent two years with the American Chicle division of Warner Lambert in New Products Marketing. This followed a five-year retail marketing assignment with Ore-Ida/HJ Heinz. Walt graduated from St. Joseph’s University in 1979 with a BS in Food Marketing.
Joe’s prior managerial experience at McCain Foods and Campbell Soup Company paved the way for him to join Honor Foods in 2012. As the Vice President of Sales & Purchasing, he leads his team with a true customer-first perspective. This is one of the key factors in Honor’s ability to deliver exceptional food products at great prices.
Joe spends most of his free time with his active family. He enjoys improving his golf game and is a huge Villanova basketball fan. During the summer months, you will find the whole Adams crew at a beach in South Jersey.
As the Vice President of Operations, I work with an impressive team of people that keep our operations running efficiently. We strive to exceed our customers’ expectations every day. I am excited about our new facility and am actively working towards providing the best service possible to communities throughout the region as we continue our forward growth.
On a more personal note, I am a huge sports fan who loves to watch football and baseball. I grew up in Massachusetts, so I’m a huge New England sports fan, but you’ll find me on the golf course during the warmer weather. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I have four children, and three grandchildren that keep me and my wife entertained and enjoying life.
