ONEIDA ANNOUNCES APPOINTMENT TO NEW KEY ROLE ON THE EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP TEAM
The Oneida Group, a leading marketer of food preparation and dining products, announces an appointment to a key new role on Oneida’s Executive Leadership Team.
Jamie Keller, currently Executive Vice President for The Oneida Group’s Retail Business Unit, will be appointed to the new role of Executive Vice President of Retail and Foodservice.
“Jamie is an outstanding leader with a strong track record of success during his nearly ten years with the Company,” said President and CEO Patrick Lockwood-Taylor. “He quickly delivered improved business results within our Retail Business Unit, but more, championed our new strategy, driving significant upgrades in capability and execution – it is the reason we have expanded his role, and we know that he will bring the same strategic excellence and rejuvenation to the Foodservice organization.”
Previously, Mr. Keller served in several Finance leadership roles at Oneida, becoming the Vice President of Finance Operations, where he led the business through several periods of transition, establishing rigor in Oneida’s business processes. Mr. Keller began his career with eleven years in finance leadership positions at Honda Motor. Ms. Corrie Byron, who previously held this position, will leave the Company to pursue new interests.
The Company’s Chief Customer Officer, Chris Haimbach, will continue driving sales, business and operational results across the Company’s sales organization with an emphasis on Foodservice sales.
“We strive to continuously strengthen our organization to ensure we continue to deliver world-class innovation, service, and value to our customers, and Jamie’s appointment to this expanded role is certain to support and drive these key initiatives, added Lockwood-Taylor.”
