Gerber Names First-Ever Chief Growing Officer

June 29, 2021
The childhood nutrition company famous for its Gerber spokesbabies named its 2021 spokesbaby as well as granting him an honorary role as Chief Growing Officer.
Ann Turner Cook may have been the first Gerber baby, but 90 years later, there's a new face in town. Meet Zane Kahin from Winter Park, Florida. Young Kahin was recently selected as Gerber's 2021 Spokesbaby as well as being named its first-ever Chief Growing Officer. Gerber recently made the announcement that Kahin was the winner of its 11th annual photo search.

Gerber launched the photo search in 2010 after numerous parents submitted unsolicited photos of their children hoping to see their child on the logo. According to the company, in honor of the program's 11-year anniversary, Kahin will not only serve as the 2021 Gerber Spokesbaby but will also receive the honorary title of Chief Growing Officer for the year. 

As part of his tenure, Kahin, who was born February 3, 2021, will help Gerber with its next generation of products. According to a statement, he will have the opportunity to serve as official Chief Taste Tester, provide the Gerber executive team "advice" about what babies need for the future and guest star as Gerber CEO for a day where he will help make business decisions that foster company and every baby's growth.
