Dave Hackman has been involved with School Nutrition program for the past 22 years with JTM Food Group. Dave is the Regional Sales Manager for the Midwest section of the United States representing his company in 7 states.

Before the sales and product presentation responsibilities he was involved in the supply chain and bidding of products for the company.
In the 80’s and early 90’s Dave owned a small distribution company in Cincinnati so he has experienced many parts of business and has a good understanding of processes and what it takes to get products to market.

Sales Manager, Central Region
Dan McCullough grew up in north central Missouri in a small town (Trenton) close to the Iowa border. He attended the University of Missouri, and graduated with a degree in Human Development & Family Studies. During college, he worked at a country club and loved foodservice so much that he stuck with it, and has never looked back.
Over the years, Dan have worked for a distributor, broker, and now works for Peterson Farms. He feels like he has well-rounded experience, and is well-respected in school nutrition. Iowa is still somewhat new for him, but he has been an SNA industry board member in Kansas and Missouri. He also helped lead the Heart of America group in the Kansas City area for several years.
Dan feels like listening is one of his strengths, but having a voice is also important, and he would be thrilled to join the SNA board in Iowa as an industry representative.
Dan and his wife Amy have two boys, Isaac (17) and Luke (13).
