The Redstone Group is pleased to announce today that Chris Folz will succeed George LeCavalier as Redstone’s President, as part of the company’s succession plan.
Folz, who has 23 years of experience in the foodservice industry, including the last nine as Vice President in charge of Sales at Redstone, will immediately assume the title as President, as he continues to take on greater responsibility and oversight within the company. Folz has held various leadership positions and board appointments within the industry, and has been recognized with a number of awards recognizing his leadership abilities and notable impact.
LeCavalier, who has served as Redstone Group President since 2004, will remain actively engaged in the company in his role as CEO, and guide the company into the future making the eventual succession smooth and seamless. “I couldn’t be more pleased to be handing the baton today to my friend and colleague,” said LeCavalier. “Chris has been a huge part of Redstone’s success, not only in leading impressive and consistent sales growth, but in helping create a culture here at Redstone that we are really proud of. As we have anticipated this transition, he has worked really hard and grown tremendously as a leader. Chris has always been a person that people want to be around. In the last few years he has honed those gifts and become a leader who people want to follow.”
