Adam Grogan has been named president of Greenleaf Foods, a U.S. plant-based food company owned by Maple Leaf Foods.
Grogan—who has been serving as the company’s chief operating office since 2019—is replacing Dan Curtin, who will retire at the end of the month after working more than 40 years in the industry.
Prior to joining Greenleaf, Grogan spent 20 years working at Maple Leaf Foods across functions including supply chain management, category management, brand marketing and customer business development. In 2013, Grogan was a winner of Canadian Grocer's Generation Next award, which recognizes future leaders in grocery under the age of 40.
"Dan is a strong leader who has been instrumental in building our Greenleaf business, and we are deeply grateful for his contributions. As Dan hands the reigns to Adam, we are confident that Adam's experience, passion for excellence and commitment to delivering winning results, make him extremely well suited to lead Greenleaf into the future," said Maple Leaf Foods president and CEO Michael McCain, in a media release.
Past his retirement date, Curtin will serve as a strategic advisor to ensure a seamless transition and to move the company into the next phase of its growth strategy.
