LIVINGSTON, CALIF. — Dan Huber has been promoted to chief executive officer of Foster Farms. He succeeds Laura Flanagan, who has resigned after a little more than two years in the position to pursue other opportunities.

Mr. Huber joined Foster Farms in 1996 as general manager of Southern California sales/distribution and most recently was chief operations officer. During his tenure at Foster Farms he also has held the positions of general manager of both the PNW chicken division and the turkey division, vice-president of supply chain, and senior vice-president. Prior to Foster Farms, he held sales and management positions within the Oscar Mayer and Kraft Foods companies.

He has been active in several industry organizations, including the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, the National Chicken Council and the National Turkey Federation.

Mr. Huber received a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

“Dan is uniquely qualified to lead Foster Farms,” said Terry Martin, chairman of the board. “He brings over 23 years of agribusiness, supply chain, food production, food safety and branded sales management experience to this position. His depth of expertise and familiarity with Foster Farms’ business and community are strengths that will drive the company into the future. We thank Laura for her many contributions to Foster Farms and wish her the best in her future endeavors.”
