Devault Foods, a leader in portion-controlled meat preparation and packing, has evolved over the last seven decades. The company now provides most of the proteins that reside in the center of your plate, including burgers, meatballs, Philly steaks, sausages, steaks and chops. Since 1970, Tom Fillippo has led the Company as President with remarkable resolve. Tom successfully navigated the company through major industry changes and branded Devault Foods as one of the most respected companies in our industry. It is with tremendous gratitude, respect, and delight that we announce Tom Fillippo’s transition into his new fulltime role as Chairman of the Board of Devault Foods.
The next phase of the Company’s growth as envisioned by Tom himself, will be led by Brett Black, Chief Operating Officer who will assume the role of President and Chief Executive Officer. Black will be the third person in the Company’s history to hold that title. Sharing in leadership of the Company’s vision, Thomas W. Fillippo has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Devault Foods.
