Shenandoah Growers picks new COO
Cameron Geiger held senior leadership roles for Walmart
Shenandoah Growers Inc. has hired former Walmart executive Cameron Geiger as the company’s chief operating officer, it announced this week.
The Rockingham County-based agricultural products company says Geiger will help lead the company’s next phase of growth.
Geiger, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1989 — the year Shenandoah Growers was founded. He brings more than 30 years of experience in technology, automation and supply chain logistics.
For nearly 19 years, Geiger held a variety of leadership roles at Walmart. He served as senior vice president of supply chain services at Walmart U.S. and as chief information officer at Walmart International.
Shenandoah Growers says it’s developed the largest commercial indoor organic growing systems in the country, and is the largest certified organic indoor farming company, selling in most major U.S. retailers. Its line of fresh herbs and greens is sold under the That’s Tasty brand. The company recently announced an expansion of its transportation fleet, adding 15 dual-temperature trailers.
“Cameron’s wealth of experience managing and continuing to evolve one of the most complex and diverse supply chains in the world, day in and day out, and his reputation for transformation, technology-driven leadership is an exciting addition to the Shenandoah Growers team,” company President Phillip Karp said in a statement.
