Held began her career in the marketing department of the Germantown, Md.-based foodservice consulting firm in 1993, most recently serving as its chief marketing officer.

 “I am excited that the board has embraced my ‘marketing-led’ approach and am both humbled and honored to have the opportunity to lead the firm into the next phase,” Held said in a statement.

“Kathleen’s passion for the industry, commitment to our clients, and ability to motivate people towards a goal has strengthened Cini-Little’s position in the global marketplace,” said Bill Eaton, chairman of Cini-Little’s board of directors. “She has revitalized our global brand, rejuvenated our corporate culture and given us a clear vision for the future.”
