Springfield Creamery, makers of Nancy’s Probiotic Foods, has named Ed Regnier CFO, making him only the second CFO in the company’s history. The co-founder and co-owner of Springfield Creamery, Sue Kesey, has held the position of CFO since the company’s inception in 1960 and will now assume the role of CEO.
Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, the family-owned and operated natural foods company has a long legacy as innovators, as they were the first company in the U.S. to add live probiotics to yogurt back in 1970. From there the colorful history continues, with a Grateful Dead benefit concert in the early 1970’s to keep Springfield Creamery open in challenging financial times, to Huey Lewis as one of the first distributors for Nancy’s in the San Francisco Bay area. Today, Nancy’s Probiotic Food products are available across the U.S., as one of the top brands in the natural food dairy case.
