Paramount adds key staff positions

Steven Weyhing has been named general counsel to Paramount Coffee and Jeff Kolk has been hired as assistant plant/quality assurance manager.

Steven Weyhing’s legal career has been multi-faceted, serving in both the public and private sectors, in regulatory litigation, environmental, liquor and agricultural law.  He has successfully litigated complex regulatory disputes through the highest courts in Michigan and federal judicial systems.

The former assistant US attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan has also been a member of the Lansing offices of several prominent Michigan law firms during his 35-year legal career.   He graduated with honors from the University of Michigan Law School in 1979 and serves as a director and advisor for the Lansing-based Todd Martin Youth Leadership Charity.

“Weyhing’s varied and substantial legal experience provides a needed component to Paramount as it continues to expand,” says COO Steve Morris.

Jeff Kolk is the former director of operations at Eastside Deli Supply Inc., where he developed and led the quality assurance, human resources and facilities management departments for the company, which is now in 11 states.  He got his start managing retail operations for his family’s bakery in Howell.

“Kolk’s expertise with food safety and certifications will help Paramount develop its extensive SQF Level 2 certification,” Morris says.

Paramount Coffee is one of the Midwest’s largest and fastest growing roasters, now in its 80th year of roasting and distributing coffee for major retail, private label and direct-to-consumer markets.
