In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Bruce Cardenas, Chief Communications Officer for Quest Nutrition. Prior to joining Quest, Bruce served in the U.S. Marine Corp. where he was assigned to the security detail for one of the Marine Corp. generals. While in the Marines, Bruce participated in various sports such as powerlifting and football. After leaving the Marines, Bruce pursued his life-long dream of becoming a police officer and joined the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). While in the LAPD, Bruce started a high end security firm providing security for music executives and celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Courtney Love, Rickie Martin, Mark Anthony and many others. During the interview, Bruce will share how he met the owners of Quest Nutrition at a local gym, and how that relationship evolved into him becoming the Chief Communications Officer for the company. Bruce will also discuss the Quest mission and the Quest Nutrition products, which include protein bars, powders and chips. The products are in 90 countries and the protein bar is the top selling protein bar in the market.
Bruce believes that developing long-lasting relationships is key to any successful business. His natural entrepreneurial ambition, combined with his strong affinity for connecting communities through meaningful relationships, has solidified his place with the Quest family.
