Ellen Stechman

Sales Representitive

Ellen Stechman is our customers most trusted advisor on what they will love from Regional Access. Her passion for upstate producers and great food made the world over shines through in every conversation and interaction. Her background in the foodservice industry and restaurants combined the being a home chef extraordinaire means if shes talking about it, shes tried it. And hey… maybe someday we will all get a backyard brick oven too but for now you will have to head to beautiful Hector, NY on Seneca Lake to try hers out instead.

Chris Predmore

Chris Predmore

Purchasing Manager

Meet Chris:  Chris is good at math and ok with words.  He scored a slant above average on his SAT’s.  The two qualities stand in line sufficiently enough for analyzing purchasing trends and communicating, so, naturally that’s what he does here as our Purchasing Manager.  However, it isn’t that simple and he can often be found aiding in every facet of Regional Access, whether it’s picking an order, corralling NY State’s best artisanal products, or taking out the trash.  When he’s not being the jolly self-described ‘resident pin-ball,’ he’s at least being the manic flapper.  Chris likes garage rock music and even does puzzles in his “Mr. Rogers” cardigan over the weekend.  He doesn’t want you to know this.  He has two teenage sons who often act more mature than himself.  He is proud to have taught them something.  You may find him lingering around ice rinks as he can’t seem to shake his love for the game of hockey.  Hit him up if you ever need some hack bass playing on your album; again, he’s a touch above average.
