Every year, IDDBA and Winsight Grocery Business recognize emerging and established leaders in the retail bakery, deli, foodservice, and dairy sectors, naming them Champions of Change.  

Champions of Change are nominated by their peers and customers and are recognized for consistently demonstrating excellence and superior results in the retailer/wholesaler and supplier/vendor communities. 

We are proud to announce that two Brill colleagues received this honor - Strategy and Activation Manager, Mark Mallen, and Jaime Mills, Vice President of Sales. 

Mark, who has been with Brill for 26 years, was recognized as an Emerging Champion, an award for inspirational food industry professionals. “While I am honored to have received this award, I feel it belongs to everyone at Brill,” he said. “My success is due to the accessibility, support, and collaboration between the cross-functional teams I work with every day. We come together to help our customers overcome the challenges they face, especially this past year during the pandemic. I love my job because I enjoy having the opportunity to provide solutions to our customers and see them grow and be successful.” 

Jaime Mills, who has been with Brill for 12 years, was recognized as a Legendary Champion, an award for established senior-level business leaders. “I am grateful for the recognition and especially of my teams’ accomplishments over the past year. I was impressed with how we quickly adjusted how we go to business and kept everything moving forward for both the customer and Brill,” she said. “The partnerships we have with our customers are vital to our future success.”
