NICK CADUC - OP. ADVISORY GROUP
PHIL DE VOOGHT, MEMBER - OP. ADVISORY GROUP
Founders' Operating Advisory Group was formed in the summer of 2015 to formalize our firm's relationship with individuals that provide certain advisory services to our full-time team. These services take the form of pre-closing or post-closing assessments of current practices in specific functional areas, as well as other intermittent coaching, mentoring or other services. Members of the Operating Advisory Group meet annually at the Founders Summit, where senior managers from each of Founders’ companies come together to build group-wide knowledge and relationships, as well as visiting with specific companies ad hoc.
As a member of the Operating Advisory Group at Founders, Phil is involved in pre-closing or post-closing assessments of current practices at portfolio companies, with a special focus on sales and marketing.
Phil is the current Chief Commercial Officer at Natural American Foods, a leading North American honey products manufacturer. Prior to his role at Natural American Foods, and Tricor Pacific Founders Capital Inc., Phil was Chief Customer Officer at Golden Boy Foods, a subsidiary of Post Holdings (NYSE:POST). Phil has 30 years of experience in Food, Household and Personal Care industries in both the U.S. and Canada, at companies including Kimberley Clark, SC Johnson, Campbell’s, and Maple Leaf Foods.
