Oppenheimer Group veteran Steve Roosdahl has been promoted to vice president of operations.

Roosdahl, who has worked at Oppy for 24 years, formerly head positions in transportation, manufacturing, quality control and operations, warehouse and inventory administration and most recently, sustainability, food safety and government relations and facilities.

 “Steve is very well suited for this promotion to senior management,” says Doug Grant, Oppy’s executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Roosdahl took his first leadership role as one of the original developers of Oppy’s state-of-the-art supply chain software. Another initiative Roosdahl has been on the forefront of is Oppy Transport, the company’s 3PL service, which he actually wrote his thesis on when he received his MBA in 2016 from Athabasca University.

Roosdahl also has spent many years chairing the Produce Traceability Initiative’s implementation committee, CPMA Council of Food Processing and Consumer Products (CTAC) and in his current CPMA director role.
