Todd Bamberg is the former Senior Global Grocery Buyer at Whole Foods Market, the final stage in an 11-year career with the upscale grocer. Todd started his career as a Graphic Designer at WFM Stores and regional-level marketing, from 1999 to 2001. His career path shifted quickly into purchasing, working in support roles for grocery, dairy, frozen & bulk teams in the Southwest region of WFM, handling Associate Buyer duties, working with vendors on new items and support of existing items, opening new stores in Texas, Colorado, Louisiana and New Mexico. In 2005 he joined the WFM Mid-Atlantic Regional Grocery Team as an Associate Grocery Buyer, supporting store operations and working with regional and local vendors and distributors on new items, category reviews, promotional planning and new store openings. He returned to Austin in 2006 as a part of the Global Grocery Purchasing team, helping to spearhead new item development, category reviews, marketing initiatives and all national promotional planning for over 200 vendors in over 70 categories. This team was responsible for bringing thousands of new items to the shelves of Whole Foods Market grocery, dairy, frozen and bulk departments. These efforts culminated in the largest sales and margin growth trends seen to-date in the company’s history.

In 2011, Todd started a consulting practice, Launchpad Consulting, Inc., partnering with manufacturers in the CPG industry on new product development, trade spending budget and analysis, and project management. He is based in Chicago.
