Our Story

Humble Beginnings, Rapid Growth

Presence was founded in 1990 by Bill Weiland and Christine Tzumas, who now operate as President/CEO and COO, respectively. Executive Vice President and co-owner Milton Zimmerman joined in 1995, while Chris and Michelle Lobo joined in 1999 and Brian Naylor in 2007.


Over the past 25 years, Presence has grown from a small and humble Midwest-based natural and organic food brokerage, to a national powerhouse with over 500 employees.
