Judson-Atkinson Candies, Inc. has made several management structure changes in response to former president Basil E. Atkinson stepping down, including naming his daughter Amy Atkinson Voltz president.
Atkinson, who purchased the San Antonio-based Judson Candy Co. in 1983 and renamed it Judson-Atkinson Candies, will still serve as an adviser to both Judson-Atkinson Candies, Inc. and sister company Atkinson Candy Co.
"Dr. Atkinson is still very active in the company's day-to-day operations,” Atkinson Voltz says. “We're not going to change our way of doing business; these are strictly management changes that will enable Judson-Atkinson Candies to grow stronger as a company."
Since joining the company in 1984, Atkinson Voltz has worked in commodities and purchasing, as well as on the freight side of the business. She will oversee production, handle commodities and become more involved in product development in her new role.
