Mt. Sterling, IL- Dot Foods, the nation's largest food industry redistributor, is proud to announce the promotion of three key leaders to new roles within the company. These individuals are an integral part of the team that will help guide the company to continued success as a leader in the industry:
- Dick Tracy - Chief Operating Officer
- George Eversman - Executive Vice President, Retail and Business Development

"We're fortunate that our business continues to grow," Dot Foods President Joe Tracy said. "We need outstanding leaders to help spearhead that growth, so we're thrilled about the experience and perspective Dick, George and Cullen bring to their new roles."
Dick Tracy, the youngest child of Dot Foods' founders RT and Dorothy Tracy, joined the family business part-time in 1980 before becoming a full-time employee in 1991. He's spent most of his career in sales, working first as a district sales manager then assuming regional sales manager duties before becoming Dot's national sales manager. From there, he was named the vice president of Edot, vice president of customer development, and he most recently served as executive vice president of foodservice. In his new role as chief operating officer, Dick will now oversee the warehouse and transportation facets of Dot's business.
"I look forward to learning more about the operational side of our business, renewing old friendships and forming new ones," Dick said. "I've spent years in sales making promises to our customers, and now I get to work side by side with the team that ensures we deliver on those promises."
George Eversman is a 20-year member of the Dot Foods family. He worked his way up the ranks from marketing manager to regional sales manager then retail business development manager. Eversman was named vice president of retail sales in 1997. As executive vice president of retail and business development he will continue to be responsible for retail-related customers and suppliers and will now also oversee Dot's relationships with its foodservice suppliers.
Cullen Andrews also adds responsibilities as the company's new vice president of foodservice national accounts. Andrews will become more involved in strategic planning while continuing work on Dot's international business and foodservice national account initiatives. He previously served as a district sales manager, business development manager and regional sales manager, and was promoted to director of national accounts in 2009.
