  • President of the Planters Specialty Products Company; more than doubled the portfolio to $1.6 billion over a four year period.
  • The turnaround CEO of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc.; reversing financial declines, clearing up a myriad of financial and accounting difficulties, reducing debt and expanding globally.
