LOS ANGELES – Tracy Quinn is resigning as chief financial officer of Overhill Farms Inc., effective Feb. 24. Robert Bruning has been appointed to replace her, announced James Rudis, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
Quinn, who is resigning to spend more time with her family, has been with Overhill Farms since September 2007 — first as Interim CFO and later as CFO. Before joining the company, she spent 21 years in various senior-level finance and operations positions in the US and internationally with the HJ Heinz Company.
"We are extremely grateful for the many contributions Tracy has made to Overhill Farms, in both financial and operational areas,” Rudis said. “Tracy had an important role in reducing the company's debt and refinancing that debt on very favorable terms. Additionally, she played a significant part in our obtaining new accounts and relationships, and in launching our Boston Market initiative, which will be an important part of Overhill's future."
Bruning is joining Overhill Farms immediately to ensure a smooth transition. He was CFO of Okami Inc., a food processing and distribution company, from 2006 until it was acquired by another firm in 2011. He previously was CFO of Zacky Farms Inc.
Overhill Farms Inc. is a supplier of custom prepared frozen foods for branded retail, private-label foodservice and airline customers. Its product line includes entrées, plated meals, bulk-packed meal components, poultry, meat and more.
