In the past few months, TreeHouse Foods has been solidifying the power of its executive team, announcing the appointment of several new Chiefs. Recently, the company also added a new President to its roster. Kevin Jackson will be the Senior Vice President and President of Snacking and Beverages.
"Today, consumers recognize private label store brands as consumer brands. Private label represents a wonderful opportunity, and I'm eager to be part of it," said Jackson in a recent press release. "As TreeHouse repositions itself to better align its categories and resources to help customers achieve their goals, I'm looking forward to leveraging my experience to position the Snacking and Beverages division to flourish and drive our plans for growth."
Jackson brings to TreeHouse over 25 years of consumer packaged goods management, marketing, and sales experience. He was most recently Senior Vice President, U.S. Retail Sales and North American Away From Home Division, for The J.M. Smucker Company, where he led the company's U.S. efforts in pet, coffee, and consumer goods, as well as oversaw the restaurant, foodservice, and convenience channels.
"I'm very excited that Kevin will be joining the executive leadership team at TreeHouse," said Steve Oakland, Chief Executive Officer and President. "I'm confident that his extensive experience developing, growing, and managing numerous categories across both the retail and foodservice landscape will prove invaluable."
Since he joined the J.M. Smucker Company in 2002, Jackson has served in numerous roles of increasing responsibility over his 17-year career. Prior to that, Jackson was a Brand Manager at Brach's Confections and Constellation Brands. He earned his Masters of Business Administration from New York Institute of Technology and his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is part of Revenue 50 and Sales Executive Share Group.
