FC DEVELOPMENT CORP. NAMES NEW COMPANY CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO)
FC Development Corp. announced today that it has secured the services of Edwin Molina to serve the company and its partners and subsidiaries as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO). FC Development Corp. functions as a management and development entity for the Farmer’s Cow brand of companies, partnering with the Farmer’s Cow collective of six Connecticut-based family farms, and leading the Farmer’s Cow Calfé & Creamery collection of restaurants and kiosks. The Farmer’s Cow, originally established in 2003, in Connecticut, serves many local and regional communities throughout nine states, including throughout New England.
The Farmer’s Cow brand sources the freshest and healthiest products from their own (and their partners’) farms – securing and operating distribution channels that include their own fast-casual, farm-to-table calfés and kiosks, as well as regional and national chains and grocery stores (including Whole Foods, Stop & Shop and Big Y). The Farmer’s Cow collective is also leading the farming industry in the development of innovative technologies and environmental sustainability – from developing new pollution capturing processes to producing clean energy systems that can power and fund numerous projects and programs – their own as well as community-based organizations seeking clean and renewable energy.
Molina brings to the FC Development Corp., and the entire Farmer’s Cow brand of companies, decades of experience in both start-up business creation and growth, as well as mid-size and large corporate organization improvement, expansion, and leadership. A multi-industry executive and leader, Molina has been nationally recognized as a pure entrepreneur able to develop needed plans and supportive resources, and who has led his teams to achieve often extraordinary growth and success. In addition to his highly evolved business acumen, Molina has for decades helped and supported a variety of non-profit organizations and causes, both personally and financially.
“My job is to not just navigate our companies through our developed plans of expansion and growth,” said Molina, “but to also ensure that we have the resources and employee commitment to allow our brand, The Farmer’s Cow, achieve each of our companies’ collective goals, and to support one another and serve our customers and communities in ways that benefit all involved parties.”
About Molina, FC Development Corp. Chairman, Steven Ayer, quoted, “Edwin Molina is a true leader with decades of C-Suite experience – and a strong history of discovering and implementing truly disruptive technologies, and real-life culture & process change. His tremendous passion, energy, charisma, and experience is exactly what FC Development Corp. and the Farmer’s Cow brand of companies need as we accelerate our rapid expansionary plans in the days and months ahead.”
