The Simply Good Co. Appoints Mara As CFO

Shaun Mara

Denver, Colorado-based Simply Good Foods Co. named Shaun Mara as CFO, effective Oct. 27. He was previously CFO of Atkins Nutritionals and Simply Good Foods from 2014-17.

After the merger between Conyers Park Acquisition Corp. and Atkins Nutritionals, which created The Simply Good Foods Co. in July 2017, Mara pursued other opportunities before returning to Simply Good Foods in June 2019 as SVP of strategy and business development. In this role, Mara has led the company’s strategic planning initiatives and the integration team for the Quest acquisition.

Mara will succeed Simply Good Foods’ current CFO, Todd E. Cunfer, who has announced his resignation to pursue another executive leadership role at a company headquartered closer to his family. Cunfer will remain with the company and assist with the transition of his responsibilities for a brief period.

“I am extremely happy to work with Shaun as our CFO. I have known Shaun for more than 20 years. As an invaluable member of our executive team for many years, he knows our business and the category well and has been intimately involved in both our strategy development and market execution,” said Joseph E. Scalzo, president and CEO of Simply Good Foods.

“His background and operating experience will serve Simply Good Foods well as we continue to execute against our plans and strategies of generating long-term sustainable net sales and earnings growth that we believe creates value for shareholders. I also want to thank Todd for his many contributions to Simply Good Foods relating to our steady growth since our transition to a public company and the transformational Quest acquisition. He has been a trusted partner and a terrific CFO.”

Mara will lead Simply Good Foods’ finance function, including tax, treasury, internal audit, investor relations, external development, corporate financial planning and analysis and financial systems, as well as the company’s information technology group. Mara will continue to report to Scalzo.

Prior to Atkins Nutritionals, Mara was CFO at Dean Foods and Roofing Supply Co. after spending more than 20 years working in senior financial positions at the William Wrigley Jr. Co., the Gillette Co. and Staples.
