Then: Vice president of marketing and field sales, Made Drinks Co.
Now: National account manager, KanPak LLC
Allison Cash has experienced firsthand the ins and outs of the food and beverage industry. In 2011, she worked from her Nixa home marketing for Chicago-area beverage producer Made Drinks Co.
A role on Shawn Askinosie’s advisory board led her to her next position in 2013, when she became Askinosie Chocolate LLC’s first chief operating officer. A need for more flexible hours – and time to spend with her two children – led her to step down in 2016 and take her current role with Kansas-based KanPak LLC.
She’s still an adviser and consultant for Askinosie.
“I count Shawn as one of my mentors and friends,” Cash says.
