Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) is an award-winning, farmer-owned dairy co-op with one of the most recognized and beloved food brands in the western U.S. The company has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past five years and in 2018 began rapid expansion toward our vision of becoming a leading national food brand.
The company was founded in Tillamook, Oregon in 1909. For over a century, our farmer-owners have been committed to providing the most consistent, best tasting, highest quality dairy products made in the most natural way possible. Our co-op structure drives an unparalleled commitment to quality. Our headquarters remains in Tillamook, and today we also have a substantial office in Portland, Oregon.
About the Opportunity
We are excited to introduce this new role at Tillamook: Executive Vice President, Stewardship. This person will be responsible for directing our overall Stewardship, member (shareholder) relations, and external relations strategy in all aspects of the business. In many ways, this role is the strategic “conscience” of the company, ensuring that we are responsibly upholding our guiding principle to do right by all of our stakeholders in all that we do. In fact, one of our stated shared values is Good Stewards, meaning we do the long-term right thing for our farmers, employees, consumers, communities and our brand.
The EVP will have strategic oversight over several critical functions at Tillamook, including corporate social responsibility (stewardship), sustainability, community engagement, corporate communications, government affairs, farm services, and co-op member/investor relations. The EVP will lead the development, management, and execution of comprehensive external relations and outreach, philanthropy, and social responsibility strategies to positively position Tillamook among key stakeholders.
The role can be based in Tillamook or Portland, Oregon (candidate preference) with frequent travel between the two sites as well as occasionally to Boardman, Oregon. The EVP, Stewardship will report directly to the CEO and will be a critical member of the company’s executive team.
