In this Episode
With foundations in finance, strategy, and sales, Rob Sarlls has spent over 25 years focused on the food industry, and the past ten years in senior operational and leadership roles with plant-based food companies. When Sarlls first joined Wyandot as CEO five years ago, he spearheaded rewriting the company’s strategic plan and codifying its core values to reflect commitment to its customers and community. After discovering the B Corporation Certification, a verified standard recognizing a company’s positive social and environmental impacts, Sarlls led the company to apply for the certification and committed to continue harnessing the power of business as a force for good. Sarlls believes Wyandot already possessed a service-oriented culture, and the B Corp Certification has helped solidify the company’s commitment to making the world a better place and to giving his employees purpose.
“Everything we already had in place: our commitment to quality and service then morphed into building a culture focused on better-for-you and service to each other — both service internally between us as employees as well as externally to the community.”
Rob Sarlls also discusses how Wyandot has benefitted from SNAC International membership, his goals for the association as Chairman, and details Wyandot’s COVID-19 community and employee relief initiatives.
