Glory Foods Chairman Michael Moore To Keynote MLK Breakfast
1/8/2014 4:33:57 PM

Glory Foods Chairman Michael B. Moore

Michael B. Moore, Chairman of Glory Foods, Inc., based in Columbus, Ohio, will keynote the Martin Luther King, Jr. Business and Professional Breakfast, 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, January 21 at the Charleston Marriott Hotel, 170 Lockwood Drive, sponsored by the YWCA Greater Charleston and the City of Charleston. Glory Foods, the national leader in Southern-style seasoned foods, named Moore as Chairman in 2011, as consumer spending on their products that year topped $100 million. For breakfast reservations, call the YWCA 843-722-1644 or visit website: www.ywca-charlestonsc.org.

Moore has ancestral ties to South Carolina. He is the great-great-grandson of Civil War hero Robert Smalls, who was born a slave in 1839, in Beaufort, S.C., and escaped to freedom in 1862, after seizing a Confederate steamship in Charleston’s harbor. Smalls filled the vessel with family members and other slaves and successfully sailed out of the harbor and arrived at a Union naval blockade.

Moore was in brand management at General Foods USA and Coca-Cola USA where he managed the Jell-O gelatin and Coca-Cola classic businesses respectively. After serving as VP of Marketing for No Fear, Inc., one of the hottest sports apparel brands of the 1990’s, he emerged as a highly sought-after consultant, advising a variety of clients including technology companies, a major professional sports league, and a cutting-edge education and training holding company. Later Moore was President and Chief Marketing Officer of Infopop Corporation, the software technology company that created the foundation of the social networking movement by managing online communications for Sony, Accenture, and The New York Times.

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, Jr. has served as honorary chairman of the MLK Breakfast for the past 14 years. “Thanks to Mayor Riley, this event has become a major highlight of the MLK Celebration, attracting hundreds of top civic and corporate leaders,” said Kathleen Rodgers, YWCA Executive Director. “Celebrating Dr. King’s legacy of greater social and economic freedom for all, makes a good climate for business, it betters human relations, and showcases the lowcountry at its best.”
