McDermott + Bull has successfully placed Tim McGarry as Corporate Controller at Randall Foods. Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, Tim will play a pivotal role in revamping the finance and accounting department and driving the company’s aggressive growth plan across retailers, food service, and high-end restaurants.
Tim brings over 16 years of accounting and controller experience in high-growth, ever changing manufacturing environments. Most recently, he was the Controller at Harris Spice, a Harris Freeman Company, where he oversaw global plants in Turkey, Vietnam, India, and California. Before that, he held senior accounting roles at Goglanian Bakeries and King’s Hawaiian. A highly experienced Controller, he will develop and implement the necessary foundational and functional tools to support acquisitions and further grow the business.
Established in 1953, Randall Foods is a private equity-backed provider of fresh poultry and meat products and is considered to be one of the largest distributors in Southern California. Through the years, the company has grown into a multimillion-dollar food processing business. Their products are now found throughout California, the Pacific Northwest, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, and New Mexico.
In February 2021, Randall Foods was acquired by private equity firm Highview Capital. With extensive experience in the food sector — including its acquisition of Good Source Solutions, subsequent merger with Gold Star Foods, and continued expansion as GS Foods Group — Highview is well positioned to help lead Randall Foods into its next chapter of growth.
