Title: Director, Dairy North America

How long  have you worked for PD? I have worked for Pecan Deluxe for 17 years!

What drew you to PD originally and how have you seen PD change since? I was drawn by the opportunity to work for a dynamic company owned by a great family like the Brighams. I have seen so much growth since I started.

Three words to describe PD: Family, Innovation, Teamwork 

What do you enjoy most about working for PD? I love the collaboration of working together to provide ingredient solutions for our customers.

What do you consider most challenging about your job? With such a broad array of products and services, keeping up with the new markets and applications is a challenge.

Favorite quote, saying, scripture or line from a movie? “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.”

Do you recall any embarrassing moments at work? Slipping on water in the plant on a customer tour was not fun!

If you could do another job within the company for one day, what would it be? Praline Pecan processing in the plant. I love the open copper kettles and smell of caramel in the air.
