McDermott & Bull Finds Director of Supply Chain for Golden State Foods

IRVINE, California, May 4, 2017McDermott & Bull, one of the largest executive search firms in the Americas and the fastest-growing firm within the Hunt Scanlon Top 50 Recruiters list, is pleased to announce the successful appointment of Jon Clancy as Director of Supply Chain with Golden State Foods Liquid Products Manufacturing Group, one of the largest diversified suppliers to the Quick Service Restaurant and retail industries.

This executive recruiting engagement was conducted by the fit Team at McDermott & Bull, which includes Jeff Black, Partner; Jason Pinegar, Associate Principal Consultant; Trey Mullen, Associate Consultant; and Kelly Nguyen, Executive Search Coordinator; as well as Chris Pring, Recruiting Associate.  According to Black, “An efficient supply chain is integral to success for this highly customer-centric manufacturer of complex sauces and condiments for food service and restaurant customers.  Jon Clancy brings a wealth of experience in leadership, supply chain and manufacturing operations from his background with Nestle and the U. S. Army, but the most powerful aspect of his fit for Golden State Foods is his outstanding personal makeup and personal credibility.”

Clancy began his career in the military after completing an undergraduate degree as an ROTC Distinguished Military Graduate of the Army Logistics School.  From 2001 to 2003, he served as a Junior Military Officer with several leadership roles within Warehousing, Transportation, Maintenance and Human Resources.  He was then hand-selected, from over 160 Junior Officers, as the General’s Aid to work with the General Officer and other senior Army leaders.  In 2004, Clancy was deployed overseas as a Logistics Officer and Captain, where he held the two most senior logistics positions within a 600 personnel organization.  He was also awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service and leadership.  In 2005, after an honorable discharge from the United States Army, Clancy was recruited to Nestle USA, where he has spent the entirety of his professional civilian career.  He grew quickly in his roles and leadership responsibilities, beginning as a Supply Planner and then becoming Product Supply Manager.  In 2008, Clancy was selected to join and build a start-up location as an Operations Manager and was promoted two years later as General Manager to lead a team of 175 employees.  Since 2014, he has served successfully as the Demand Planning & International Logistics Compliance Manager.

Clancy received a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
