Join the plant-based revolution!
This is a position for someone with real drive, skill and creativity in the red hot field of plant based consumer packaged goods. It is an opportunity to shape the future of a growing company as a CEO in a hugely exciting industry. Our client is a leading maker of artisanal vegan cheeses. Thanks to a great product and a new wave of consciousness, they have experienced huge growth. Four years ago, their products were in one local store. Now they are in over 2,500 nationwide - from premium grocery chains, to co-ops to conventional supermarkets and health food stores.
Our client is now ready to take the company to the next level - ramping up production, adding new products, stepping up marketing and distribution and raising capital. We are looking for a highly motivated, skilled and creative CEO to assist the current founder in growing the company for the very bright future that lies ahead for it.
Ideally, you will have experience navigating the world of food Sales, Supply Chain, Distribution and some experience with manufacturing and HR. We are adequately funded and profitable, but experience with raising capital would be a plus. BS Degree is required with a preference for an MBA. Must have at least 20 years of total experience with at least 5 years leading at a strategic level within a food or beverage company.
