This year marks the 7th joint Exit Planning Exchange Connecticut (XPX Connecticut) and Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth meeting on exit planning.

We will interview a seasoned private equity backed CEO, Tim Shanley. Tim is a four time private equity backed CEO – Carvel Ice Cream (Roark Capital), Victoria pasta sauce (Huron Capital), Ronnoco Coffee (Huron Capital) and now Tall Tree Foods (Altamont Capital). He will share stories of best practices and lessons learned in navigating one or more exits from businesses (from both the buyer and seller perspective). This meeting should provide valuable feedback to advisors as to what works and what doesn’t to add value in the planning process leading up to a successful exit. The panel will be moderated by Ramsey Goodrich, Managing Partner of Carter Morse & Goodrich.


Tim Shanley, President/CEO of Tall Tree Foods

Tim is currently President/CEO of Tall Tree Foods, a specialty Protein company with four authentic, super-regional Brands. He is leading the repositioning of the brands, streamlining of the supply chain, and professionalizing of the organization to a more relevant, on-trend, growth business.

Most recently he was Interim CEO of Ronnoco Coffee, the leading provider of Specialty Coffee and quality beverage services in the mid-west. Ronnoco is a portfolio company of Huron Capital. He led the efforts to reinvigorate the team, set clear priorities and identify the critical value-creation levers. He led the search for the permanent CEO and still serves on the board.

Prior to Ronnoco he was CEO of Victoria Fine Foods. He created a clean-up, high growth strategy to build the premier, PREMIUM pasta sauce company in the nation. He crafted a coherent Brand image built around a unique, ownable positioning (“Ingredients Come First”) leading to a doubling of branded sales and household penetration. The team overhauled the business, leading to an inspiring balance sheet and flexible organization, and ultimately a sale to B&G Foods.
