“I enjoy having the opportunity to lead individuals from all walks of life that all have their own strengths and opportunities to grow. None of us can run a flour mill on our own, so it’s imperative that we build strong safety and team driven cultures at our facilities. I’ve worked for Ardent for 15+ years and almost every day provides a new challenge or learning opportunity.
