Flagship Food Group has announced the appointment of Adam Butler as its chief executive officer and member of the advisory board.
Before joining Flagship, Butler spent over 15 years at Kraft Heinz, where he held various leadership roles, including his most recent position as the president of Kraft Heinz Canada.
Flagship’s executive chairman, Rob Holland, said: “We are so excited about Adam joining our company as we enter a new chapter of growth of our brands, products and facilities”.
“Having acquired five businesses and more than doubled our business in recent years, we’ve been carefully considering candidates for this position for quite some time. We met a number of outstanding people in the process, and Adam is someone with the unique combination of skill, experience, and passion that I know will make a great leader.”
Operating from Flagship’s Denver office, Butler will be responsible for sustaining the substantial growth the company has achieved in its brands in recent years.
Butler said: “I could not be more humbled and honoured to join Rob and the Flagship group in the exciting journey ahead. The market they serve is without question one of the most dynamic and influential drivers of food globally, and Flagship is well-positioned to be an explosive and transformative leader in the space.”
“I had the opportunity to spend time with a number of exciting and growing organisations looking for the right fit, and there is not a more impressive combination of brands, business models, culture and people out there.”
Holland added: “Flagship has truly become one of the largest and most important players in the premium and Hispanic food space, and I’m excited to have attracted the talent that will leverage this position in the marketplace to drive accelerated growth, more solutions for our customers and a broader reach to consumers across North America”.
