WINSTON-SALEM, NC: TW Garner Food Co., the maker of Texas Pete Hot Sauce, has made a change in its leadership with the promotion of four of its highest-ranking executives.
Ann Garner Riddle, formerly TW Garner Food’s president, has become the company’s chief executive. Glenn Garner was promoted from vice president of marketing to chief marketing officer. Matt McCollum, who was the company’s financial analyst, has taken on the role of chief financial officer. Heyward Garner was promoted from business development to chief operating officer.
“Glenn, Matt and Heyward are the fourth generation of family members at TW Garner Food Company and will be the leaders of our company as we move into the next few decades,” Riddle said. “They have proven themselves time and again, and I could not imagine assembling any better leadership team.”
The new team will operate out of TW Garner Food’s corporate offices in Winston-Salem.
Glenn Garner said that the main reason for the changes is to open up the executive vice president and vice president levels to nonfamily members and shareholders.
The company expects to make these changes with nonfamily members in the future.
Founded in 1929, TW Garner Foods initially manufactured barbecue sauce. Today, the company has a full line of hot sauces, wing sauces and seafood sauce under the Texas Pete brand. It also offers CHA! by Texas Pete sriracha sauce, and salsa and tortilla strips under the Green Mountain Gringo brand.
