IRWINDALE, Calif. -- Larry Kern, president and c.e.o. of Ready Pac here, is planning to take early retirement from the company, and Dennis Gertmenian, Ready Pac's founder and board chairman, and Jack Davis, executive committee chairman, will assume Kern's responsibilities.
Under the direction of Kern, Ready Pac has nearly completed its plant restructuring that began late in 2005, resulting in four strategically dispersed plants of scale each with increased capacity and capabilities to better serve retail and foodservice customers nationally.
"Larry has re-shaped our business model and set the stage for dramatic profitable growth for Ready Pac and I want to sincerely thank him for his contributions these past two years," Gertmenian said. "He has upgraded our entire go-to-market approach, including hiring an experienced leadership team which I look forward to working with as we now capitalize on the investments made."
In discussing Ready Pac's retail and foodservice innovation and customer service commitment, Gertmenian said he "look[s] forward to reconnecting with our valued customers and associates responsible for our successes -- past, present, and future."
