Fortifi Food Processing Solutions has appointed Victor Nieto as executive vice president of Lean Transformation & Growth effective May 1, 2024.

Reporting to Massimo Bizzi, CEO of Fortifi, Nieto will lead lean implementation and continuous improvement. He also will guide the development of the Fortifi business operating system, which, the company said, will make Fortifi the premier aggregator in an otherwise fragmented industry. His guidance will standardize Fortifi's operational roadmap, quality management, and KPI development.

"The breadth of Victor's expertise in logistics, operations, procurement, acquisitions, and Lean and Continuous Improvement initiatives makes him a focal asset on our team," said Bizzi. "With his exceptional track record of success in maximizing product and customer-experience quality, he brings a big-picture viewpoint that matches Fortifi's emphasis on sustained global success."

Nieto most recently spent three years in executive positions of increasing responsibility for supply chain, product quality, and operations at Switzerland-based Sonova Holding AG, a manufacturer of hearing instruments. Previous to that, he served for more than six years as a global supply chain executive at leading life sciences and diagnostics innovator Danaher Corp., including the Envista Holdings Corp. spun off from Danaher. He began his career with 22 years at food giant Kellogg's international operations in Ireland, the US, and Mexico.

"Fortifi is uniquely positioned to revolutionize food technology and redefine efficiency in food processing," Nieto said. "I look forward to contributing my experience and insights to Fortifi's expanding global operations."
