PBN: With your past experience involving primarily chemicals, what attracted you to coffee manufacturing?
TITTLE: Prior to working with chemicals, I had consumer experience in food ingredients and other operations. The coffee industry places me back into the mainstream of the food ingredients and food products arena.

PBN: How is Autocrat planning to expand its production?
TITTLE: To meet increasing product demands, Autocrat recently purchased a multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art extraction system and opened a 3.3-acre distribution center in Woonsocket. With the purchase of additional equipment, my job will be to ensure that product capacity meets the demand and growth of liquid and coffee extracts, offering Autocrat the ability to expand into new market areas.

PBN: How will your skill set and experience help you to do that?
TITTLE: My 25 years of broad and diverse operations experience, combined with my participation in new plant start-ups and plant design, will enable me to ensure the future growth of Autocrat.
