Scott Sargent new CEO of Crunch Pak
Scott Sargent is the new chief executive officer at Crunch Pak. Former CEO John Graden will work with Sargent through the end of the year, then become a member of the board, and continue as director of raw product purchasing.
Sargent joins Crunch Pak from Chick-fil-A in Atlanta, where he was manager of supply chain purchasing for the 1,700-restaurant chain. During his tenure at Chick-fil-A, the company’s revenue doubled and that similar rate of growth is what attracted him to join Crunch Pak.
“The innovation at Crunch Pak is exciting and the fresh produce industry overall is challenging,” Sargent said. “I am thrilled to join Crunch Pak’s outstanding team and help the market leader expand even further.”
Prior to Chick-fil-A, Sargent worked for the consulting firm Booz Allen and Delta Airlines. Sargent is a Navy veteran, with five years of active duty service.
Diane Huntsinger-Carson, chairwoman of Crunch Pak’s board of directors, said, “Having Scott join our team is the next major step in the evolution of our company. From a host of great candidates, Scott stood alone in terms of leadership strength, directly applicable experience and a terrific record of accomplishment. The board could not be happier with this choice.”
