Wolfli earned his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock, California, and went on to acquire his Master of Business Administration from his alma mater. "I'm thrilled to be joining the dynamic team," said Wolfli. "I feel I can easily and immediately contribute to their mission, vision, and purpose as these tenets are similar to ones I have personally followed throughout my career."

"Tim will be a great addition to our team with his robust skillset, industry knowledge, and collaborative nature. His approach to striving for shared success will help bridge the gap across all facets of our organization," said president and chief executive officer, Chris Drew. "Ocean Mist Farms is fortunate to be celebrating our centennial anniversary this year, and we recognize that we must continually grow and evolve to continue to offer our Gold Standard products year-round," said Drew. "Having Tim's strong background for financial excellence as we adapt to the ever-changing worlds of business and agriculture means we must remain nimble and fastidious to meet this challenge."

Ocean Mist Farms is a fourth-generation family-owned business celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year.
