Eggland’s Best, the #1 branded egg in the U.S., announced today that CEO Charlie Lanktree plans to retire after having served the company for 32 years. As part of the final steps of a successful transition plan put in place several years ago, Kurt Misialek will be adding CEO to his current role as President of Eggland’s Best, effective January 1, 2022.
“It has been a great pleasure and honor to have spent more than 30 years leading a fantastic team,” Lanktree said. “I’m thankful for our consumers who enjoy our products, as well as the suppliers, customers, farmers, and other business partners who have made this such a rewarding experience. I look forward to my next chapter, enjoying time with my wife and family, including our three children and their spouses, and our eight grandchildren.”
Misialek started with the company in 1990 and has continually increased his responsibilities, which include becoming COO in 2015 and President in 2019.
“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to continue to grow throughout my career at Eggland’s Best” said Misialek. “I look forward to working with my tremendously dedicated colleagues and business partners to drive the Eggland’s Best business to even greater heights.”
