Brian Kerr was just 11 years old when he rode his bike down to Ontario cottage country’s legendary ice cream company Kawartha Dairy in Bobcaygeon to ask for a job.
Now Monty Crowe of the ownership family has chosen him as chief executive officer to handle an expansion out of cottage country into major urban markets, reports the Globe and Mail.
When the Crowes first hired him, he began scooping ice into bags for fishermen’s coolers.
“After a 27-year absence, much of it spent working for a giant U.S. food company, Mr. Kerr, now 46, is back working at Kawartha Dairy. But this time, he is the chief executive and general manager,” reports the Globe and Mail.
