Chief Financial Officer
Kristin Forney is a CPG and food industry veteran, a leader that brings more than 28 years of financial experience to Ocean Spray—not to mention an inherent understanding of the farming way of life.
“I was raised on a farm in Nebraska, so I certainly understand and deeply connect with the purpose of this historic agricultural cooperative. Connecting our farms to families for a better life, to me, is about further strengthening and shaping a prosperous future for Ocean Spray and its farmer-owners.”
As Chief Financial Officer, Kris leads Ocean Spray's financial planning and analysis, corporate controller, corporate development, procurement, and transformation teams. Prior to joining Ocean Spray, she served as senior vice president and CFO for the North American segment for Hain Celestial Group, where she led a finance organization supporting a $1.6 billion revenue organic and natural products business. While at Hain, Kris’s leadership was integral in transforming the North America business into a strong operating company while building finance capabilities to position the business for growth.
Kris also has served in finance and revenue growth management leadership roles across multiple businesses at ConAgra Brands during the course of 15 years. She is also a Certified Public Accountant, having spent nearly five years in public accounting with Grant Thornton.
“I am thrilled to be with Ocean Spray at such a pivotal moment in their history, and truly humbled by the opportunity to work for and with Ocean Spray’s farmer-owners. To deliver strong financial results means we’re doing right by their small family farms.”
Kris earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from Hastings College and is a Certified Public Accountant.
