DENVER, Sep 09, 2013 (Menafn - GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --Marley Coffee (otcqb:JAMN), (www.marleycoffee.com), the sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee company, has appointed two industry veterans to director roles within the company's sales force. Effective immediately, Russ Stange will serve as Director of Sales-West Coast and Chris Mamos will serve as Director of Sales-East Coast.
Mr. Stange previously served as Senior Account Manager at KeHE Distributors, Inc., an Illinois-based grocery distribution chain. Prior to this, he worked as Business Development Manager and Foods Account Manager at KeHE. Earlier, he was an Account Manager at Tree of Life, a KeHE subsidiary.

Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee, said, "Among the most important requirements for working at our company are to have passion for our vision and to understand our brand. I have worked with both Russ and Chris before, and they share that passion and understand the character and distinctiveness of Marley Coffee."
Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee, said, "Russ and Chris both bring a tremendous amount of high-level professional acumen and depth of experience from their past positions, and we are very fortunate to have them serve as our Directors of Sales for the West Coast and East Coast, respectively. Russ' objective is to use his background in the natural grocery channel to increase penetration there for Marley Coffee. Additionally, his expertise and relationship with KeHE will be exceptionally useful as we increase our distribution through them. Meanwhile, Chris' experience opening and building big accounts at Marley Beverage will be a tremendous help now that he has moved over to the Marley Coffee team."
