Ardent Mills has named a new vice president of operations.
Troy Anderson had been working, since 2014, as Ardent Mills’ senior director of operations. Anderson succeeds Brad Allen, who retired in May.
“We are making significant changes to our leadership team in order to position Ardent Mills to deliver on our strategic growth plan,” says Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Brad was instrumental in building a solid operations team. With his retirement, we wanted to bring in a new leader that understood our past, and also understands our long-term vision. Troy is that person. He is a significant driver in aligning our critical operations structure with the rest of the organization.”
Anderson is changing the structure of operations to intentionally align similar mills (in size and configuration) to share best practices and team up for customer success.
“The honor of delivering a nutritious food ingredient that feeds millions of people every day makes for an extremely rewarding career,” Anderson says. “I am filled with excitement about this new chapter at Ardent Mills and look forward to actively leading our Operations Team in living out our vision and mission in serving our customers, communities, supplier partners and Ardent Mills team members.”
In another change at the company, Mark Kruger has been promoted to vice president, human resources and employment law.
