It was just last week that we reported O’dang Foods had undergone a total brand refresh. It seems that the popular hummus brand has set out on an explosive growth trajectory, recently appointing a new CEO as well. Eric Hintz has joined O’dang and The Jersey Tomato Co. as he steps in to lead the growth goals of each brand under the Keen Growth Capital portfolio.
“I am very excited to join the team at Keen Growth Capital and specifically to lead the O’dang Foods and The Jersey Tomato Co. businesses. They are fantastic brands that are in the forefront of consumer trends and preferences around great taste, quality, and better-for-you ingredients and are well positioned to move to the next level of growth,” said Hintz.
According to news source LifePulseHealth, Hintz has over 20 years of expertise leading CPG companies, occupying multiple senior leadership positions at Pinnacle Foods, Rechitt Benckiser, and several others. His experience ranges across a diverse portfolio of businesses, working on up-and-coming brands to some of the biggest names in food.
Hintz's industry experience is best defined by his ability to drive strategic revitalization of businesses through innovations and productivity enhancements. He studied at Emory University, Goizueta Business School, where he earned his MBA, as well as Connecticut College where he earned a BA in International Relations.
