“We are making significant changes to our leadership team in order to position Ardent Mills to deliver on our strategic growth plan,” said Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Brad was instrumental in building a solid operations team. With his retirement, we wanted to bring in a new leader that understood our past, and also understands our long-term vision. Troy is that person. He is a significant driver in aligning our critical operations structure with the rest of the organization.”
