ConAgra Promotes Maass, Stoufer; Says Goodbye to Sharpe
ConAgraFoods Inc. announced that Paul Maass has been promoted to president, Commercial Foods, effective immediately. Maass will take over leadership of the Commercial Foods segment from Rob Sharpe, who announced last week his intention to retire at the end of the company's fiscal year (May 29, 2011). As president of Commercial Foods, Maass will be responsible for almost 35 percent of ConAgra Foods' annual revenue and will lead the Lamb Weston, ConAgra Mills, Spicetec Flavors and Seasonings and J.M. Swank businesses.
Sharpe will continue to serve as senior adviser to Chief Executive Officer Gary Rodkin. Bill Stoufer, currently vice president of Supply Chain for ConAgra Mills, will take over as president, ConAgra Mills, effective immediately.
Maass joined ConAgra Foods in 1988 as a commodity merchandiser in the trading business. He quickly progressed in several roles at the company and, in 2003, was named president and general manager of ConAgra Mills. He assumed responsibility for J.M. Swank in 2007 and for Spicetec Flavors & Seasonings in 2010.
Stoufer has been with ConAgra Mills since 1991. As vice president, Supply Chain, he had broad operational responsibilities including margin management, transportation and logistics, customer operations and process improvement. In addition to his supply chain expertise, Stoufer spent a number of years in the sales arena for milling, starting as territory sales manager and progressing to director of sales, prior to his current role.
