The Amalgamated Sugar Company LLC announced in May the appointment of John McCreedy, an 11-year veteran of the company, as Amalgamated’s new president and chief executive officer. McCreedy took the helm following Vic Jaro’s retirement after nine years as CEO of the grower-owned company.
“John has been an integral member of Amalgamated Sugar since he joined our team,” stated Duane Grant, chairman of the Amalgamated Sugar board. “John has proven himself to be a true leader and has a clear vision for the company’s future as we continue to work hard for our growers, employees and customers. With John at the helm, we feel confident Amalgamated will continue to have a strong voice and influence in the sugar industry.”
McCreedy joined Amalgamated Sugar in 2004 as general counsel and rose in the ranks to executive vice president prior to being selected president and CEO. A graduate of the University of Idaho College of Law, McCreedy most recently led the company’s reorganization, labor relations and business development efforts, establishing a track record for building strong leadership teams and proving he has the skills necessary to implement Amalgamated Sugar’s vision for the future, the company stated in announcing his selection.
