Aaron Hamer to Succeed Glenn Martin as CEO of Highline Mushrooms
LEAMINGTON, ON - As out-going CEO Glenn Martin stepped away from the position to become Chairman, Highline Produce Limited announced that its current CFO, Aaron Hamer, stepped in to assume the position earlier this week.
“Highline has been at the forefront of the mushroom industry’s innovation over the last 56 years, and we are thrilled with where we stand today,” said Hamer. “We are well positioned to keep growing ourselves, but more importantly, we focus on supporting our retail, foodservice, and food ingredient customers in growing their mushroom categories.”
Hamer joined the team in 2014, and has since helped to guide its growth strategy through several mergers and acquisitions that have made Highline one of the world’s largest organic mushroom companies, according to a press release, with operations and customers across Canada and the United States.
The company said that it has enjoyed rapid growth in recent years thanks to the collaborative efforts of Martin, Hamer, and their seasoned leadership team, and Martin will continue to share his wisdom and industry leadership expertise in his role as Chairman.
“We thank Glenn for his incredibly successful tenure as CEO and are excited to partner with Aaron as he leads Highline through its next chapter,” said Board Member Enda Walsh. “We are pleased that Glenn will assume the Chairmanship and look forward to his continued involvement with Highline.”
Highline maintains a family-focused environment and fosters a positive, stable working environment. Hammer said that he plans to maintain the company’s customer-first focus and commitment to excellence.
Congratulations to both leaders and the company on this newest chapter.
