The Maschhoffs, one of the largest family-owned pork producers in the United States, has announced a notable change in its leadership as Bradley Wolter, the CEO and president, will be stepping down from his role. Wolter will pass the torch to Jay Miller, an experienced industry professional with an extensive background within the company.

During his tenure as CEO, Wolter has played a pivotal role in driving The Maschhoffs' purpose of feeding families and building communities for a better future. With passion and dedication, he has led the company towards excellence, fostering a culture of shared values and a strong purpose. His visionary leadership has been instrumental in positioning The Maschhoffs as a renowned force in the industry.

"Over the past couple of decades, I have shared a passion with The Maschhoffs in producing quality, safe meat protein with an intense focus on a sustainable farm system at its core," Wolter said. "While the future will present new challenges, they will be faced by a strong team with shared values and a robust purpose at The Maschhoffs. I look forward to my continued engagement with them."

As Wolter takes a step back from his role as CEO, he will maintain an active presence within the organization by serving on The Maschhoffs' Board of Directors. This decision underlines his ongoing commitment to the company's success and continued growth.

In addition to serving on The Maschhoffs' Board of Directors, Wolter will devote more time and attention to his family and personal commitments in the role of president at Windy Hill Meadows, LLC, his personal agriculture-based business. This endeavor will allow him to continue pursuing his passion for agriculture and further contribute to the industry's development.

Taking over the leadership mantle, Miller possesses an equally impressive history with The Maschhoffs, having been an integral part of the organization's journey. Miller's expertise lies in operations management and technical proficiency in animal health, supported by his successful ownership of a business until divesting in 2022.

With a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the industry, Miller is poised to lead The Maschhoffs into the next chapter of growth and innovation. His unwavering dedication to our company's people and culture has been evident through efforts in fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where every individual's growth and well-being are prioritized.

“Dr. Bradley Wolter has led this company with exceptional skill, and I am committed to building upon his achievements and taking it to new heights," Miller said.

Miller emphasizes his focus on our purpose and core values. "Together, we will chart a path of groundbreaking advancements, fostering a culture of excellence, collaboration, and improvement," Miller said. "Our team's dedication and expertise will drive us forward, shaping the future of our industry."

With his firm belief in the potential of the organization, Miller's appointment promises an exciting and transformative era for the company under his leadership. The Maschhoff family, which has been producing pigs for multiple generations, remains unwavering in its commitment to the pork industry. The company's continued dedication to its employees, customers, and partners remains steadfast under Miller's leadership, ensuring that the core values of relationship, stewardship, service, and progress are upheld.

The Maschhoffs wishes to extend its heartfelt gratitude to Wolter for his exceptional leadership and dedication throughout the years and looks forward to a bright and prosperous future under the guidance of Miller.
