The CEO of Beston Global Food Company (BFC), Jonathan Hicks, has stepped down from his role to dedicate full time to his family.
Prior to his resignation, Hicks had taken three-month compassionate leave due to his partner’s health condition.
“It has been an extremely difficult decision to make,” said Hicks. “However, considering the positive trajectory of the company, the key catalysts that have been achieved, and the solid delivery on the strategic plan, I am very confident that Beston Foods is on a strong path to sustainable profitability.”
Since the compassionate leave of Hicks, Darren Flew, BFC’s CFO, has assumed the role of interim CEO. The company said Flew will continue the role while it finds the new CEO.
“Jonathan has been an extremely hardworking and energetic CEO,” said Roger Sexton, chairman of BFC. “He was the right person at the right time for the company in implementing the operational and technical aspects of the second phase of BFC’s strategic business plan.”
“We are understanding of his decision, which we have accepted with regret.”
