Senior Regional Sales Manager

Chicago Headquarters

Bel has provided extensive cross-functional experiences that will help me achieve my career goals. When I worked in our Marketing department, I was able to transition between brands and gain knowledge of new categories. I was then successfully able to transition with full support from both departments. It is truly fun to work at a place that invests heavily into building its brands and people. Bel Brands is focused on growth, which provides a lot of excitement and career opportunities. The culture is supportive of change and encourages new ideas.

From Plant to Corporate

Regulatory Affairs Manager

Chicago Headquarters

I started at the Leitchfield plant and now work at corporate, and the knowledge I have of how the plant operates helps me with questions that arise in my current position. It’s empowering being in an environment where you feel like your voice is heard. No matter what the level of an employee, I feel like Bel embraces the voice of the people that help keep the company going. A lot of what I do has actual impact on the business, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to work for a company that allows me to learn and grow both domestically and abroad.

30 Years at Bel

Meet Carla

Carla Brenner

Assistant Supervisor

Leitchfield Facility

I started as a part-time student in high school and have been with Bel for 30 years—I now oversee the packaging process of our cheeses. Bel benefits are great (for example, for our new hires health benefits start on day one), but working here means more than just that. In the years I have worked at Bel I’ve met many great people, and real friendships have developed. When people come to Bel they stick around, and when you’re with these people over the years they become your family. We all work together and care about each other, and are committed to helping our coworkers and watching out for them. I can watch employees and know they care, that they want to produce a top quality product and are committed to doing so. We all want to be the best Bel plant, and I feel we will make it! Some days it gets a little chaotic, but I love a challenge, am very happy at Bel, and actually love my job.
