Singleton laid out his objectives for the coming year, which include increasing membership and consumer education opportunities.

Singleton has been with Rudolph Foods Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of pork rinds, for more than 10 years. As Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Singleton draws on his experience of diverse marketing, sales and business development to create a platform for a variety of pork rinds and snacks to become a part of consumers every day happiness.

Singleton has been a member of the Snack Food Association since 1994. In his spare time he is an avid hunter, fisherman and cooking enthusiast. He graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1981. He resides in Trophy Club, Texas with his wife Cheri, near his three children and two grandchildren.
