Tuesday, March 30, 2021
Enterra appointed Dave Lemmon as CEO. Lemmon brings over 25 years of experience in the CPG industry, most recently as president of Pet Food & Pet Snacks at The J.M. Smucker Company. During his time with The J.M. Smucker Company, Lemmon led the company in the Canadian, U.S. and international markets across a spectrum of iconic CPG brands.
He brings experience in leading transformational change and driving accelerated growth through innovation and building business processes. These capabilities provide the ideal fit to support the rapid growth of the business as it further defines the market for insect protein.
Along with this new leadership appointment, Enterra also appointed Jerry A. Vergeer as chairman of the board. Vergeer brings with him more than three decades of experience in the global animal nutrition and health industry.
“We are pleased to have Dave lead our organization and its purpose to harness the power of insects to feed and care for the world. He brings a wealth of experience to ensure we continue to evolve and transform the business to best serve our customers,” Vergeer said.
Lemmon is ready to bring about that future. “I am very excited to join the Enterra team and to be part of a truly purpose-led organization. The success and culture that has been built are a true testament to the hard work and dedication of the team. I look forward to building on the company’s momentum and bringing my commercial expertise as Enterra prepares for its next phase, accelerated growth.”
