Leadership transition taking effect at Hiland Dairy

Posted online

A leadership transition at Springfield-based Hiland Dairy Foods Co. LLC is taking effect this week.

Rick Beaman is succeeding longtime President Gary Aggus, who announced his retirement from the company last month, according to a news release. With the change, Shawn Pinon is being promoted to senior vice president to succeed Beaman. The promotions are effective April 1.

“I am proud of Hiland's heritage and successes. Shawn and I are committed to growing that legacy by continuing to invest in our products, plants and people," Beaman said in the release. "We are passionate about delivering high-quality, nutritious dairy products that our consumers love.”

Beaman has been a Hiland Dairy employee since 2012. Pinon, who most recently led the integration of the recently acquired Borden Texas Dairies into the Hiland organization, joined the company in 2017.
