Dane Sandridge

Chief Commercial Officer

Dane Sandridge is Chief Commercial Officer at Sandridge Food Corp. with responsibility for overseeing the company’s sales and innovation teams; and working closely with customers to facilitate the intricate process of bringing new products to market.

Sandridge joined the company in 2008 as a financial analyst, after earning a bachelor’s degree in economics from Wittenberg University.

In 2010, he began a two-year leave of absence to study at the Culinary Institute of America, where he earned an AOS degree in culinary arts.

Upon returning to the family business, he served as a regional sales manager, with a portfolio that included some of the company’s Top 5 accounts.

He was promoted to Vice President of Innovation in 2016, at a time when the company was experimenting aggressively with new applications for High Pressure Processing (HPP) and industrial sous vide technologies – all part of a growth strategy to expand beyond the heritage salads business.

“Today, we have the culinary capabilities to complete an entire plate of food. And not just a plate, but a world-class plate,” Sandridge says. “It changes the way we think and work. In the salad world it was pretty simple: We were the company that got invited to a picnic. Now there are so many more opportunities, and it’s elevated the way we collaborate and communicate – internally as well as with our customers and markets.”

Personal Life

Outside of work, Sandridge serves on the board of trustees for Feeding Medina County, a non-profit that provides regular meals for approximately 1,200 children and 550 seniors who face food insecurity.

He and his wife Kayla live in Copley, Ohio with their son and daughter. He’s a scratch golfer but prefers to spend time at home with his family.

“We’re outdoorsy people,” Sandridge says. “Whether it’s a walk around the neighborhood or riding bikes, we love pretty much any activity with the kids. When it comes down to it, I’m passionate about a few things: Family and food are at the top of the list.”
