Featured Associate — Ed Thurmes

Ed Thurmes

After graduating from Mankato State University, and prior to joining Mel Foster, Ed worked for several years in store management at the Target Corporation where he really learned the value of customer service. He joined the Mel Foster team in March of 1998 as a member of the distribution sales team and marketing team. “I’m fortunate to work with a great team and great distribution partners. The distribution channel is an extremely important channel partnership for the Mel Foster group, as the majority of our customers choose distribution for their supply chain needs.” Ed and his team strive to be “best in class” in the market through the highest level of customer service.

Outside of work, his wife Kelly and two young daughters, Hanna and Elysia, keep him constantly on the move. He enjoys playing softball, volleyball and racquetball, and exploring his creative side in the kitchen with new foods for his family to enjoy.
