We love a new Chief here at DMN, and Kar's Nuts has us lovestruck with its latest announcement. The manufacturer of better-for-you snacking products under the Kar's®, Second Nature®, and Sanders Fine Chocolatiers® brands recently appointed Herman Brons as the company's new Chief Financial Officer.
"I am excited to become part of a talented and experienced Kar's team as we invest in growth, innovation, and adjacent product categories to ensure that the company continues to bring new ideas that will help our customers grow their categories," said Brons.
Brons brings more than 25 years of financial experience with food manufacturing companies, including four assignments in which he served as a Chief Financial Officer. He has joined Kar's from Kronos Foods, a leading provider of global cuisine, including authentic Mediterranean foods, ready-to-eat proteins, plant-based proteins, and value-added bakery products, where he was CFO. Over six years as CFO of Kronos, Brons helped lead the acceleration of the company's top-line growth and value creation. Prior to Kronos, he served as CFO at Quantum Foods following 17 years in various finance leadership roles at CSM Bakery Solutions, an international leader in the baking industry, as noted in a press release.
As Kar's CFO, Brons will lead the company's financial, procurement, and IT efforts, with a special focus on accelerating its innovation agenda. He also will play a key role on the leadership team helping to execute the company's strategic plan.
"Throughout his career, Herman has distinguished himself as a collaborator who partners closely with other functions to achieve strong results,” Vic Mehren, CEO, said. “His keen understanding of operations and experience bringing transformational innovation to market positions him well to serve as our new CFO as we execute our growth strategy."
Congratulations to Herman Brons on this exciting new venture!
