CHICAGO, Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyler Lowell, Managing Partner of C.A. Fortune, proudly announces that C.A. Fortune has agreed to acquire CSW Food Brokerage, based in Livermore, California.
C.A. Fortune is a Natural, Specialty and Bakery/Deli sales and marketing agency currently covering the Eastern and Central market areas. CSW is a regional Natural, Specialty and Bakery/Deli sales and marketing agency covering the Northern California market, which also includes Nevada, Hawaii and parts of Oregon. The acquisition of CSW will mark the first step in the expansion of C.A. Fortune's coverage to the Western United States.
Bob and Christine Wingfield, longtime owners of CSW, will lead the Northern California operations for C.A. Fortune. "We are genuinely excited and look forward to working with C.A. Fortune," Bob Wingfield said. Throughout their years in the business, the Wingfields have excelled at attracting key people with deep industry knowledge to their team. This depth of talent will enable C.A. Fortune to hit the ground running.
"When we launched our initial business plan in June 2013, the vision and goal was to build the premier, privately-held national sales and marketing agency focused on the Natural, Specialty and Bakery/Deli trade channels," said Tyler Lowell. "With the addition of the CSW Brokerage business and the professional team that Bob and Christine have developed, we are proud to extend the C.A. Fortune brand into the Western U.S."
The transaction is expected to close in October.
