Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. has appointed veteran consumer goods leader Stan Jacot as chief executive officer from 02 February 2022.
Jacot holds an impressive track record of implementing transformational business strategies and profitably driving growth, most recently at Jane’s Dough Foods where he achieved a double-digit compound annual growth rate during his six-year tenure. Previously, Jacot held senior marketing and operations roles at Mission Foods, Borden Dairy Company, ConAgra Foods and Kellogg Company across the U.S. and Canada.
“There’s a clear opportunity to grow Arcadia’s brands while improving the lives of consumers through our portfolio of better-for-you products,” said Jacot. “Now is an exciting time to join the organization, as we prepare for the launch of GoodWheat pasta. The food we eat plays a significant role in our collective health, and I look forward to positively impacting the wellbeing of countless consumers through this revolutionary new line of pastas from the next generation of wheat – our GoodWheat.”
Jacot was selected as CEO by Arcadia’s board of directors after a nationwide search. The role was previously held by Matt Plavan from 2019 until his departure this past December, at which time Chairman of the Board, Kevin Comcowich, was appointed to the position on an interim basis.
“Stan has built an impressive career developing organizations and strategies to drive aggressive growth for existing and emerging better-for-you consumer brands,” said Comcowich. “As we continue to transform Arcadia, we are thrilled to have him on board to lead the organization through its next phase of growth.”
