Farmer Bros. Co. has appointed Randy Clark as chairman of the board, effective immediately for the Fort Worth-based coffee roaster, wholesaler and distributor of coffee, tea and culinary products.

Clark has served on the board since 2012 and succeeds Guenter Berger, who has served as board chairman since 2005. Berger will continue to serve on the board.

“We are deeply grateful to Guenter for his dedicated service to Farmer Brothers for over 55 years,” said president and CEO Mike Keown in a news release.

Berger also weighed in.

“As the company results continue to improve, and we have built a strong board of directors and management team, I think this is the right time to transition the chairman role to Randy Clark,” Berger said. 

Berger will assume the role of chairman emeritus. He has served on the board since 1980, serving as chairman since 2005. He retired in December 2007 as CEO after more than 47 years of service with Farmer Brothers in various capacities.

“The transition of this position demonstrates Farmer Brothers’ commitment to long-term succession planning,” Keown said.

Clark is a retired foodservice executive and CPA.  He has consulted for equity groups in the food industry since 2009 and has served on the board of trustees for Whitworth University since 2012.

“This is an exciting time for Farmer Brothers,” Clark said. “I am proud and honored to lead the board as we work to continue that success into Farmer Brothers’ next chapter.”
