The Food Business is moderately Recession Proof, however, I would advise the operations side as opposed to sales.

National Sales Manager in Chicago:
"More Than It Seems."
Know that a role within a smaller organization requires you to wear several hats.

"That It Would End After 30 Years Of Continuous Employment."
Clear your new desk. If the information is significant it will surface somewhere down the road. Study reports from your predecessor. Identify problem areas and act on them.

Learn your competitors' products and evaluate them against products carried by your company. Realize that it is going to take some time before you are totally comfortable in the position.
