Robert Aiken, president and COO at private label manufacturer Treehouse Foods, resigned in late October after fewer than four months in the role. Chairman and CEO Sam Reed has assumed the role of president while Treehouse – which has not commented on the reasons for Aiken’s sudden exit - initiates a search for a new CEO.
"We are disappointed by Bob's decision and his resulting departure and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Reed. "As we initiate our search for a replacement, we will pursue a CEO with the full involvement of our Board of Directors.
"Private label is of great and growing importance for our customers, and our fundamental vision and strategy remain constant. We have strong leadership and a clear path forward, and we are committed to finding the right candidate to lead us on that journey. Our commitment to TreeHouse 2020 is unwavering, and we will take the steps necessary to improve the foundation of our TreeHouse."
