Jeff Kleinpeter Retires As President, CEO Of Family Dairy

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Jeff Kleinpeter is retiring as president and chief executive officer of Kleinpeter Farms Dairy after more than 25 years at the helm of the family-owned business.

         His sister, Sue Anne Kleinpeter Cox, who has served as the company's chief financial officer, will replace him.

         The Baton Rouge Business Report’s Stephanie Riegel says the dairy announced the move Wednesday, nearly two months after Kleinpeter stepped down from his position, for what his family had said was temporary medical leave.

         Kleinpeter says he's since had a chance to regroup and felt like it was time to pass the baton to other family members to carry the company forward.

         Last year, the 101-year-old dairy was racked by a series of quality control problems that affected the taste and shelf life of its milk.
