Flowers Foods has named Chris Mulford president of Flowers Baking Co. of Thomasville, Georgia, a subsidiary of Flowers Foods. Mickey Miller, current bakery president, retires after 42 years of service with the company.

Mulford began his career with Flowers in 1987. Holding several sales positions with the company, he most recently served as VP of sales for Flowers Baking Co. of Thomasville.

“Chris’ experience and deep knowledge of the bakery business will serve him well in his new role,” said Brad Alexander, EVP and COO of Flowers Foods. “I am confident he will do an outstanding job leading our company’s original bakery and guiding its team to much success.”

Miller joined Flowers Foods in 1973 as a route salesperson in Georgetown, Georgia, held a number of sales positions during his career and was named president of Flowers Baking Co. of Thomasville in 1995. During Miller’s tenure as president, the Thomasville bakery expanded its geographic market territory and successfully completed an extensive multi-million dollar expansion.

“Mickey has done a remarkable job in managing, improving and growing our business,” Alexander said. “Throughout his 42-year career, he has been an exemplary representative of Flowers Foods to employees, customers and the communities he serves. He will be greatly missed.”
