Bob O'Neill | Vice President of Sales and Marketing
I have been with Palmer Candy since 1987 when I started on a route truck. I quickly became familiar with our customers and entered into the sales division as the Wholesale Manager in 1992. After the closing of the wholesale division in 2003, I became the National Sales Manager then was named to my current position in 2006. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and getting in some time on the golf course.
Also in Sales staff
Over 34 years ago, I started in the candy industry working for a family-owned candy & cookie company located in the Midwest. Working my way up and through various classes of trade and parts of the United States has given me the knowledge and background needed to help grow their business.
Having grown up in a military family, I lived all over the world but have called South Texas home since 2001. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Wyoming.
I started working at Palmer Candy in the warehouse the day after I turned 18 and worked here every summer while attending Morningside College.
