J.R. Rigley, President & CMO
J.R. Rigley joined The J.R. Watkins Company in July of 2005 and manages all sales, product development, research & development, marketing, international business and customer service initiatives. It’s a big job, but maybe not as demanding as coaching his kids in lacrosse.
J.R. comes to The J.R. Watkins Company with 16 years of experience in sales and marketing, having worked for Procter & Gamble and McCormick. He received a B.S. in economics from Towson University and an M.B.A. from Johns Hopkins University.
In addition to his roles as President & CMO and lacrosse coach, he serves on several boards including Cookie Cart, a non profit helping youth with career employment, and the Orono Youth Lacrosse Association. His favorite gourmet spice is pure cinnamon, and if he were stranded on a desert island with only one J.R. Watkins product, he would pick Aloe & Green Tea Lotion.
