Continental Mills Inc., the maker of Krusteaz and other well-known baking, breakfast, and snack brands, has named Robert Dilworth as chief financial officer and senior vice president. 

In his role at Continental Mills, Dilworth assumes responsibility for finance, accounting and information technology, supporting increased sales and operations and reporting to Continental Mills president and CEO Andy Heily. Dilworth has also been appointed to Continental Mills' board of directors.

Dilworth joins Continental Mills after serving as CFO of Nestle Coffee Partners, a division of Nestle USA that was formed upon the acquisition of Starbucks' global CPG and Foodservice rights in 2018.  Prior to Nestle, Dilworth spent 12 years at Starbucks in a variety of financial leadership roles, including channel development (CPG & Foodservice), digital ventures, store development, and corporate development.  Prior to Starbucks, Dilworth worked as an investment banker at Bear Stearns focused on consumer and retail sectors.

"Continental Mills' business continues to grow and, especially as an essential business, it's more important than ever that we have the people and systems to support the delivery of our beloved brands and products to consumers and to food service businesses across the country," said Heily. "Rob is a values-based, collaborative leader with an impressive pedigree in entrepreneurial CPG and food service organizations, bringing the expertise in strategy, operational finance and team development that makes him a great fit for our growing business and positive culture."

Born in the 1930s, Continental Mills has found success, and thrived, with its flagship baking brand, Krusteaz, and other lines of speed-scratch mixes, which are more relevant than ever today as Americans turn to food and cooking as a source of comfort and to bring their families together.

"Continental Mills and its products are built on a tenet of making people feel good and that's never been more important," said Dilworth. "Operationally, too, Continental Mills is an incredibly impressive organization. I am honored to be joining such an outstanding team of leaders and excited to contribute to Continental Mills' continued success."
