Brenham, Texas-based Del Sol Food Co., manufacturer of Brianna’s Fine Salad Dressings, has announced that Sherald Bell, VP of operations, will retire Dec. 31 after 27 years of service.

Bell was hired in 1995 as the plant manager overseeing operations. Under his direction, the company has grown from a 480-square-foot production room to more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space in Brenham, Texas.

During his time at Brianna’s, Bell played a role in upgrading the company’s manufacturing capabilities and production output, growing from 825 cases each day to producing more than 21,000 cases per day.

“We have learned so much from Sherald, and he will be greatly missed as he has been such a fixture and valuable contributor to this company for so long. He has certainly left a lasting impression and legacy for all of us to follow,” said Scott Eckert, CEO and president of Del Sol Foods Co.

Antonio Vazquez will assume the role upon Bell’s retirement. Vasquez joins Brianna’s with a background that encompasses seven years as the VP and director of engineering and operations with Pero Family Farms, as well as experience as the VP of operations with Nature Best PreCut and Produce.

“Antonio has been an excellent addition to our executive team. He is experienced in building high performing manufacturing processes, and we look forward to his contributions as we focus on innovation and driving growth into the future,” Eckert said.

Additionally, Sabrina Horn, who has been responsible for ensuring products are distributed around the world, will be retiring at the end of the year after 16 years of service. Blake Rosenbaum has been hired to fulfill the role of the logistics manager and will oversee the warehouse and distribution center.

“Brianna’s has a rich history and foundation in place built over the past forty years,” Eckert said.

“In today’s environment, it is imperative to create new efficiencies and expand our capabilities within our facilities here in Brenham; and having the right team members in place is critical to making that happen. We look forward to the future of our business with these new leaders now in place.”

Since 1982, Brianna’s salad dressings have served retailers and distributors throughout the U.S. and the world. Brianna’s produces 17 home-style flavors, five organic dressings and three with avocado oil. None of the dressings contain high-fructose corn syrup or trans fats, 23 are gluten-free, 18 are certified Kosher and five are GMO-free.
