Häns Kissle announced that Scott Moffitt has been named president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, following Ken Venti’s tenure.

Moffitt comes to the position with more than 20 years-experience marketing, selling and growing businesses for major food and beverage companies such as PepsiCo, Keurig Dr. Pepper Inc., and most recently, Danone North America. As president of coffee creamers and beverages at Danone North America, he oversaw the strategic development of brands such as International Delight, Silk, Horizon Organics, Dunkin Donuts and Land O’ Lakes. 

During his thirteen years at PepsiCo, Moffitt directed product innovation and was appointed to lead SoBe Beverage Company, a PepsiCo subsidiary, which allowed him to hone his entrepreneurial skills. Before that, Moffitt was chief brand and beverage officer at Keurig Dr. Pepper Inc. and part of the executive leadership team that improved the company’s operational efficiencies and established Keurig as a leader in the single-serve coffee market which ultimately resulted in a highly successful IPO in 2018. Moffitt started in his new role at Häns Kissle on November 2.

Ken Venti served as president and CEO at Häns Kissle from 2008 – 2020, during which time he developed the company into a successful competitor in the fresh-prepared foods category.
