Tom Kwak joined the team at Chippewa Valley Bean in late January as our Chief Financial/Operations Officer. He brings with him 30 years of food production and operations management to the team. Most recently Tom was Vice President of Operations for Tylina Foods in Stillwater, MN. Tom, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, started his career with Friday Canning Corporation in New Richmond, WI and spent 15 years in the canning business before moving onto the maraschino cherry business with Gray & Co. in Hart, MI. Tom loves using data and best practices to try and improve operations. We are looking forward to using that information and his knowledge to help us grow the business well into the future.
