“I enjoy having the opportunity to lead individuals from all walks of life that all have their own strengths and opportunities to grow. None of us can run a flour mill on our own, so it’s imperative that we build strong safety and team driven cultures at our facilities. I’ve worked for Ardent for 15+ years and almost every day provides a new challenge or learning opportunity. When I think about our customer base and realize how vital our operations are to the communities we serve, it gives me a sense of pride and ownership in being responsible for the continuity of our national food supply chain.”
