Our Work Dogs

Don Boyd founded Boyd Brokerage in 1984. In addition to providing our customers with exceptional products and unparalleled service, Don shared his leadership, guidance and business wisdom with food manufacturers throughout Northern California. In July 2013, Don sadly lost his battle with lung cancer. Don's passion for servicing our customers still guides us to this day with our manta “What would Don Do?"

Haley Twitchell is our newest Customer Service Coordinator, joining the Boyd Brokerage team in late 2015. When she is not talking about spices, she spends her time professionally doing hair. On her off days Haley enjoys watching the San Francisco Giants play or spending quality time with her dog Zito.
