Scott Easterwood

Over 30 years in global procurement, sourcing, supply chain, marketing and general management.

WHAT DREW YOU TO FLAGSTONE FOODS?
First, a love of the food industry (having spent most of my career in it). Second, the culture and entrepreneurial spirit of the company.

HOW DO YOU ENCOURAGE TEAMWORK?
By linking the work we do to the broader company results and vision. Thinking more holistically beyond your function is essential so you can see the impact you make by doing things differently, and by facilitating the right connections with other groups.

WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF YOUR WORK?
There are two equally rewarding aspects: 1) Seeing the progress of a team’s performance through coaching and development by practicing true servant leadership. 2) Seeing the wins we can make by leveraging the full assets of the company (Innovation, Operations, Procurement, Logistics, Marketing, etc.). In an extremely price-driven and competitive environment, it’s a must.
