He has been in the food and beverage industry for 19 years. Prior to his work in the industry, he also has 12 years of dairy experience.

“My family and I are very excited about moving into the area – we have always wanted to live in this part of the country,” said Dexter.  “This is a great opportunity for us and we are looking forward to becoming a part of this community.”  

“Tony brings a great deal of expertise and leadership skills to our team in Red Boiling Springs,” said Ty Brannen, regional supply chain director for Nestlé Waters in Tennessee. “We look forward to the plant prospering under his management.”
