Scott I. Sechler Sr.
Owner and Chairman
Bell & Evans
“As owner, chairman and visionary for Bell & Evans, I am always on the lookout for our next innovation in animal welfare, packaging or product inspiration,” said Scott Sechler Sr. “I travel to Europe often to look for concepts to refine and implement here in the U.S. I also work closely with my children, both now in leadership roles within the company, to mentor and guide decisions for both short- and long-term impacts.”
He said Bell & Evans’ business model revolves around family–team members, family-owned farms, vendors, distributors and retailers. In the past year, “with grain prices, labor and supply chain pressures, we leaned into this family network to expedite solutions. Bell & Evans Grain Initiative launched to help U.S. farmers transition to organic. Our team proudly shares their work experience in our new plant with friends. Our vendors worked diligently to fill orders and keep us running because they know we are committed to mutual success.”
