Judith Hollis CEO, President

Judith Hollis spent 20 years in senior executive positions in the food industry. As Senior VP at Wendy’s International and VP at YUM! Brands, she developed high performance teams and was recognized for her acumen at “getting the right people in the right seats”.

With her experience in supply chain management, she developed a deep network of contacts in the industry, including restaurant chains, manufacturers and processors, foodservice distributors, logistics & supply chain service providers, hotel, entertainment and gaming companies, and contract foodservice.

In 2009, Judy decided to leave the corporate world to form her own business, a life-long dream. Her love of developing teams and people, combined with her broad network, led her to executive search with a food industry specialty.

Her focus on the food industry was driven by her professional experience as well as her personal love of all things food – cooking, baking, grilling, growing, entertaining, wine, and great Kentucky bourbon.

Returning to Louisville, KY, her hometown, Hollis Jones & Associates was born and now boasts a growing portfolio of industry-leading clients across all segments of the industry.

Judy cares deeply about her business and about providing exceptional personal service to both clients and candidates. She believes it is the attention to detailed execution with true concern that makes Hollis Jones & Associates special.
