A Central Valley man was promoted to corporate slotting manager for Dot Foods in Modesto.
Nick Bowman and other Dot Foods employers were recognized at the corporation’s annual meeting in St. Louis, Mo., according to a statement from Dot Foods. One of Dot Foods’ eight distribution centers is in Modesto.
More than 1,200 Dot Foods employees and their spouses traveled from Dot’s eight distribution centers to the Hyatt Regency at the Arch in St. Louis. The annual conference provided company leaders the opportunity to share success stories and an update on business and the forecast for 2012. During the nearly weeklong event, employees were recognized for their hard work and successes. “Our meeting is held annually in order to share our final results, present next year’s plan, and recognize the entire team for what they have accomplished,” said John Tracy, Dot Foods’ chief executive officer. “The success of our company depends on the leadership within our organization. While some other companies are cutting events like this, we see this as an investment in our culture and the future of our company.”
Tracy announced the promotions, including Bowman’s, on Jan. 28.
