While many leadership positions remain the same, sometimes companies need to open a new position in order to best welcome new leaders. Maytag Dairy Farms recently announced the hiring of Jeff Kent in the newly created role of Vice President of Sales. Kent joins the Maytag Dairy Farms team with career-long experience in sales and the dairy industry.
Prior to joining Maytag Dairy Farms, Kent served as the Senior Vice President of Cheese and Butter at Foremost Farms, a Wisconsin-based milk products company. During his successful tenure there, he rose through the ranks serving as Director of Sales and Marketing as well as the National Head of Sales.
According to a press release, Kent’s experience also includes building brands like Joseph Gallo Farms and Glanbia Foods. In this new VP of Sales role, his knowledge and vision will be focused on growth into new markets and with new customers nationwide.
As Maytag continues its traditional methods of making handcrafted products, Kent will lead the company into its next era of growth as he steps into this new role.
“Maytag Dairy Farms is an incredible company and we need to keep telling that story to new customers and buyers,” commented Maytag Dairy Farms CEO Don Boelens. “Jeff is absolutely the right person to carry that message and help us grow into the future.”
Congratulations to Jeff Kent on this exciting appointment!
