John Tucker has been hired to help the Portland based company expand.
Dave's Killer Bread has named John Tucker, President of Oregon-based Turtle Mountain, as its new CEO. John will work alongside company co-founders Dave Dahl and Shobi Dahl to strategically grow the company into new markets. As president, Dave Dahl will continue his ongoing leadership of product development, philanthropy, and company culture.
After a three month search, John emerged as the best candidate thanks to his unique experience successfully growing a Northwest, family-owned food company, and his already firm status as a passionate "Killer Bread Head." John helped Turtle Mountain to expand its popular SO Delicious line of dairy-free products from a $2 million business to a $100 million business in 13 years.
This is the next step in DKB's ongoing growth strategy, which began when they engaged Goode Partners as their equity partner in December. The Dahls recognized that Killer Bread Heads around the country were getting restless waiting for the company to expand to new markets, and that they needed outside help to achieve that growth.
