Ted Moy
Marketing Manager

Ted has been working in the natural foods industry, in various roles since 2005. His career started in South Burlington, VT where he was hired as a part-time cashier. It quickly became apparent that he had more to offer than great customer service and so Ted found himself working in every corner of the store, for multiple departments. His varied experiences prepared him for the role he eventually took at Berkshire Co-op Market as the Merchandising Coordinator. Here, Ted was hired to guide the store’s aesthetic decisions and direct its promotions and sales programs. Ted now serves as Berkshire Co-op Market’s Marketing Manager and played a key role as coordinator for the store’s successful capital campaign. Ted loves chicken wings and believes the best sandwich is always the second one.
