Canteen Vending Services CEO Mike Kiser has announced his retirement, effective at the end of the year. Until then, he will support the company in its transition as Dennis Hogan, senior vice president of finance for Canteen parent Compass Group North America, assumes responsibility as CEO.
“Mike Kiser leaves a Canteen organization that is well positioned to remain the industry leader in vending innovation and service,” says Compass Group CEO Gary Green. “We wish Mike the very best, and we will support Dennis and Canteen in moving forward with a proud legacy.”
Hogan joined Compass Group in 1996 as a senior manager of strategic planning and was named vice president of finance in 1999. He remains an officer of Compass Group North America.
“I am excited to lead the premier vending organization in the US,” says Hogan. “I’m very optimistic about the industry, even in this challenging economy. Canteen has a seasoned professional team in place and we will build on that organization to drive growth.”
