Matt Anderson has been named CEO of Frontier Soups™, bringing a second generation into management of the company, which has produced gourmet soup mixes since 1986, according to company founder Trisha Anderson, who will remain in the role of President.
Matt, who is Trisha Anderson’s son, has immersed himself in company operations for the past year and now has assumed responsibility for business operations, including financial oversight, strategic planning, sales, and production. Trisha will retain responsibility for product development and marketing, she said. Both of them will be at the 2015 Summer Fancy Food Show, Booth 4121, to continue Matt’s introduction to customers and others within the specialty food industry.
“Matt has been on a fast track for the past year learning all aspects of our business, and it’s now time for our continued growth and development to be a function of the strength and initiative the younger generation represents,” Trisha said. “Matt and Frontier Soups literally grew up together. I’m thrilled with the business and financial expertise he brings to the company and that this business, which I started at home while my children were young, is now transitioning to a second generation of our family.”
Matt has 15 years of experience in the financial services industry. He began his career in 1999 at Lehman Brothers and then joined Goldman Sachs in 2010, where he worked until joining Frontier Soups last July. “Working for these firms taught me the importance of developing my relationships with both my clients and my team,” he said. “I’m looking forward to meeting more of our customers and to continue developing the outstanding workplace that my mom has built at Frontier Soups. I’m also excited about taking on management of a growing business and moving it into its next phase of development.”
