What makes Lineage an exciting place to work?
Unprecedented growth, massive investments in our infrastructure and service capabilities as well as a commitment to innovation make Lineage a dynamic place to work. The momentum we continue to generate is incredible, and it creates limitless opportunities for our team members.
Speaking of our team members, so rarely do you come across a group of people who are ferociously smart, who are unequivocally good at what they do, and who can so agreeably work together in pursuit of a higher purpose. Lineage is special because our team is special, and I am grateful to serve them every day.
Which of Lineage’s values is most meaningful to you, and why?
Is this a trick question? All of Lineage’s core values are especially meaningful to me because they are foundational to the character and spirit of our company. However, if I were to narrow in on a few, I would choose Trust, Innovation and Servant Leadership.
To me, Trust is simple – do what you say you’re going to do. That is how trust is earned. Innovation isn’t just a mindset at Lineage. We solve our toughest challenges using future-forward, cutting-edge approaches to deliver value to our customers, grow our company and transform the food supply chain to eliminate waste and help feed the world. Finally, Servant Leadership calls on our leaders to support our team members first and foremost. Our job as leaders is to make decisions and investments that make their critical jobs safer, easier and more efficient.

What is your proudest achievement?
No doubt, my proudest achievements are raising two remarkable kids, Brendan and Brooke, and finding my perfect bride, Leslie. I cherish my family and the time we spend together playing games, staying active and traveling.
