G&L Holdings Appoints Three Board Directors
Holding company of Grain Craft and Southeastern Mills expands and diversifies board make-up
G&L Holdings Inc., the holding company of leading food ingredient manufacturers Grain Craft and Southeastern Mills, appoints three new board members to their board of directors. Rhonda Jordan, Steve Dunphy and Rick Strait were selected as independent directors in the holding company’s decision to expand and diversify its board make-up.
The decision to add independent board directors was a strategic step in the growth of the existing business platforms. While the company has grown organically over the past 25 years, the new directors were added to continue the long-term growth plan, advise on new acquisition and expansion opportunities and create value for all stakeholders through overall consumer and product insight.
Rhonda Jordan is a retired executive of Kraft Foods. During her 25-year career, she served in a variety of executive positions including operating president of three different divisions – U.S. Cheese, Grocery and Frozen Pizza.
Steve Dunphy joins the G&L board following a career of more than 30 years in the consumer goods industry with Land O’Lakes, Kellogg’s, Pillsbury and Procter & Gamble.
The third new board member, Rick Strait, offers a strong background in private debt and equity investment. He retired in 2017 from 35 years with Northwestern Mutual Capital where he was a full-time portfolio manager and held roles as a senior leader.
