Allegiance Retail Services on Wednesday announced the appointment of Tomas Ramos as director, new member development.
In this position, Ramos will serve as the key liaison between Allegiance Retail Services and the retail grocery community in greater New York, to recruit and onboard new members to the Allegiance/Foodtown cooperative. Ramos has spent many years serving the independent grocery community as a financial advisor.
As managing director of TFR Services, he helped facilitate more than $100 million in debt capital to more than 25 independent supermarket operators in the New York market since 2009.
Prior to establishing his own firm, Ramos worked for a number of “blue chip” banks securing and managing credit for independent grocery business owners, Allegiance said. Most notably, he generated more than $125 million in loans to more than 75 grocery store owners in the Tri-State area when serving as VP, community development group, at JP Morgan Chase.
“Tomas has an impressive record of success for many years, assisting the independent grocery sector in the Tri-State area, and we look forward to him leveraging his experience to serve as a key liaison within this vibrant sector of the grocery community,” Michael Stolarz, president and COO of Alliance, said.
