LOS ANGELES – Fresh poultry and meat processing and retail distribution company, Randall Farms, a Vernon, Calif.-based subsidiary of Highview Capital, announced M. Scott Dineen as its president and chief executive officer. Dineen replaces President Ron Totin, who is retiring after leading the business since 1984. As president and CEO, Dineen will oversee Randall’s operations and strategy while focusing to scale the business to cover more geographical space and expand its product offerings.
“I am thrilled to be joining a company with such a rich and storied heritage, built on a steadfast commitment to putting the needs of its customers above all else,” Dineen said. “I intend to ensure that Randall stays true to what made it great in the first place — its homegrown charm, attentiveness and dedication to its customers, and well-priced, high-quality products.”
Dineen brings nearly 18 years of experience leading food processing, manufacturing and distribution businesses, with an expertise in protein products including beef, seafood and poultry. Dineen’s prior service includes a role as president of Sierra Meat & Seafood Co., the second-largest independent Certified Angus Beef distributor in North America. He was also vice president of purchasing and production at Newport Meat Co. and held a senior role at Conagra Foods.
“Scott’s track record of success managing and growing food- and protein-centric businesses makes him a perfect fit to lead Randall into its next chapter,” said Steve Russell, senior portfolio manager at Highview. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have him on board and look forward to working closely with Scott and his team as we expand the business through both organic initiatives and additional strategic acquisitions. We thank Ron for his many contributions as a longtime steward of the business and the Bloom family legacy.”
