John Werner, Sr. VP & Chief Strategy Officer, Schreiber Foods

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you in trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” This statement, often attributed to Mark Twain, has been written on the wall in my office for the past four years.

Along with my teammates, I had the opportunity to take on new challenges and learn new skills to deliver growth for our company and impact to our communities.
