President & CEO
Stephen has led La Terra Fina since 2015, after previously serving as CFO since 2011. Stephen has led LTF through significant organic growth, as the team has driven sales, operational efficiency, new product development and commercialization, as well as brand recognition to become nationally recognized as the dip and quiche company to beat! Prior to joining La Terra Fina, Stephen spent time working in public accounting in both the UK and the US. His focus on the manufacturing industry helped him gain keen insights about strong and not-so-strong business operations, and he applies those insights today. Stephen’s experience at C&H Sugar and Genentech helped him to realize his desire to work at a small, nimble, rapidly growing manufacturer – La Terra Fina! What does he love the most about La Terra Fina? “One of many things I love about La Terra Fina is that we’re big enough to face some interesting challenges but small enough that we can make decisions quickly and see the results of those decisions come to fruition.” What makes Stephen tick? His love of learning, which fits well in La Terra Fina’s Continuous Improvement Culture!
Stephen says, “I love the rich, generous ingredients and wonderful flavor of all of our dips. However, my favorite product is our single serve quiches. They’re a great go to item for any meal when I’m on the run. They’re a really convenient grab and go item, healthy with lots of protein and very tasty.”
I love spending time with my family and friends and enjoy taking advantage of the many opportunities the Bay Area has to offer. I’m in my happy place when in a beautiful National or State park hiking and taking photos, or out on the golf course or ski slopes bonding with friends or my sons.
