Sales and Marketing
Mark Singleton’s career began after graduating from Southern Methodist University in 1981 with a degree in Accounting. As the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Rudolph Foods Company, Mark has accumulated diverse experience in sales, marketing and business development.
Joining the company in 2003, Singleton has helped to grow the Rudolph Foods brands, including Southern Recipe, Southern Recipe Small Batch, Pepe’s and Lee’s pork rinds. Preceding his position at Rudolph Foods, Singleton served as the President of Cantrell International, adding 12 years to his total 25 years in the food industry.
Most notably, Mark helped to pioneer National Pork Rind Appreciation Day by lobbying for the government to recognize the first Sunday in February as such. As a result of his work, RFC partners with the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund annually to advocate for retired National Football League (NFL) players in dire need as well as for National Pork Rind Appreciation Day. This day speaks to both consumers and football fans on Super Bowl Sunday, bringing America’s love for “pig skins” and pork rinds together for one day.
Previously, Mark also served as the Chairman of the Snack Food Association, drawing on his experiences within the pork rind industry.
