Perdue Farms has added to its executive leadership team, appointing Kevin McAdams as President of Perdue Foods and Chief Operating Officer of Perdue Farms.
Effective immediately, McAdams will report to Perdue CEO Randy Day.
McAdams joins Perdue Farms from Jack Links protein snacks, a privately held, family-owned company, where he was President of North America operations.
His previous senior positions include President, Schwan’s Consumer Brands and Pabst Brewing Co. Earlier in his career, he held operating roles with Mizkan, Red Bull North America, Coca-Cola and Frito-Lay.
“We’re thrilled to have Kevin join Perdue Farms,” said Day. “ He brings more than 25 years of experience as a successful and trusted leader in the food and beverage industry with a proven track record of achieving sustainable growth and driving operational excellence.
Added Day: “The complexity of today’s food and agriculture industry and our business requires a certain level of commercial and consumer expertise and a depth of knowledge in supply chain management that Kevin brings to our team. This is critical as we navigate in a more challenging climate to improve our competitive performance while upholding our core values.”
McAdams graduated from Iowa State University in 1993 with a bachelor’s in Political Science.
“I’m honored to join Perdue Farms and look forward to building on the strong legacy and mission of the company and working closely with our very talented team to position Perdue for our next phase of growth as we consistently delight our valued customers and consumers with premium foods and services,” said McAdams.
