Since joining the Sargento Family as a Marketing manager in 2007, Price has held several leadership roles including director of Marketing, director of Integrated Marketing, vice president of Strategic Planning and, most recently, president of Food Service and Ingredients.

His deep experience in plastics and market trends, the commodity market, plant operations, and material optimization will drive long-term success at Sargento. In this position, Attia will continue to develop the strategic focus of the procurement team while ensuring supply security and supplier relation management.

Prior to his appointment, Mohamed served at PepsiCo in various strategic roles from 2009 to present. He also has worked at Nestlé in several countries.
