The snacks and deli foods group Hot Stuff Foods has appointed Carol Hague, already the company’s executive vice president of strategic initiatives, as general manager of the Lettieri brands following its recent acquisition of Lettieri’s earlier this month.

“The addition of Lettieri’s brings a whole new dimension to Hot Stuff Foods and the industry as a whole,” said Des Hague, Hot Stuff Foods’ chairman, president and CEO. “The combination of the strengths of both companies provides our customers with tremendous turnkey opportunities to build new revenue streams and daypart dominance. With Carol’s leadership we will integrate a new suite of proven products and services across our business models.”

Hague will oversee all aspects of Lettieri’s operations. Greg Dornbach, senior vice president of sales, Dean Gerber, vice president and controller, and Gary Peterson, executive vice president of operations, will all report directly to Hague.
