Just Born Quality Confections has announced that David Shaffer and his son-in-law, Gardner Jett, Jr., have been elected as co-chief executive officers, effective immediately.
The decision ensures that the company will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year under family ownership and leadership.
Former CEO Ross Born announced his retirement plans from the family business last October, after 44 years at the company.
Born’s cousin Shaffer and Jett will work together with David Yale, president and COO, at the helm of the company.
David’s daughter, Samantha Jett, will assume the role of vice president of corporate responsibility, working to develop initiatives that will “keep family values at the heart of the business for generations to come”.
