Alumnus Marc McCann becomes director of operations at Michael Foods in Minnesota

Alcorn State University alumnus Marc McCann has risen to a new level of success in the field of agriculture.

McCann accepted the director of operations for the Specialty Division at Michael Foods, Inc. (MFI), which is a division of Post Holdings, Inc., in Gaylord, Minnesota. In his new role, McCann is responsible for overseeing and providing leadership while managing budgets and sales of nearly $1 billion for MFI facilities in Wakefield, Nebraska, Britt, Iowa, Lake Mills, Wisconsin, Chaska, Minnesota and North Las Vegas, Nevada.

McCann has done an outstanding job at climbing the ranks at MFI. He joined the team in August 2014 as the operations manager of the Gaylord, Minnesota facility. Since his arrival, McCann has demonstrated exceptional managerial skills by identifying and improving operational efficiencies demonstrated by the outstanding results of his team for the past three years.

Back in October 2016, McCann’s leadership led his team to earning the MFI Operations Excellence Award. The award was a result of excellent financial performance achieved by focusing on safety, quality, overall equipment effectiveness and direct manufacturing expense.

Prior to starting his career at MFI, McCann gained valuable experience with his leadership roles at Tyson and Pilgrim’s Pride.

McCann, and his wife Nitasha and their daughters, Morgan and Madison, reside in Chaska, Minnesota.
