Darcy Horn Davenport

President and “Chief Energy Officer’, Darcy ensures we are fulfilling our company purpose of ‘bringing good energy to the world’ not only within our product portfolios but also with a thriving culture within our four walls. Darcy’s energy is fueled by making PNC a great place to work and inspiring employees to work together in a transparent and collaborative way. She fosters a culture of empowerment, where teams feel comfortable to share their ideas and believe in their ability to make an impact. When she’s not speed walking around the office, she’s spending time with her two kids, trying to fit in a yoga class or hiking on Mt. Tam. See Darcy’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Paul Rode

Chief Financial Officer of Active Nutrition, Paul oversees finance, accounting, IT, Legal, and the ANI business in Munich.  He plays a strategic role in analysis, business guidance and systems and also a compliance role through accounting, regulatory and legal. He brings good energy to his team through his thought-leadership in process improvement and efficiencies. Out of the office, Paul enjoys spending time with his family and cheering for his favorite sports team, especially the Kentucky Wildcats (Go Cats!). See Paul’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Lee Partin

Lee has come a long way from his Disco DJ days to become SVP of Sales for Premier Nutrition Corporation. When we asked Lee what gets him out of bed in the morning, he said it is “easy when you have a great product to sell and a great team to work with to sell it. It’s not work – It’s fun”. This good energy starts with Lee’s team. He works with a highly talented sales team that continues to grow the business week after week. Lee’s role is to make sure we have the right people and they have the tools they need to be successful. Outside the office, Lee gets his energy from his family, his four kids and six grandkids! See Lee’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Anne Spalding

Anne likes to “go the distance”, whether that’s running a 10-20k race or ensuring all is well in our accounting function at Premier Nutrition Corporation. As VP/Controller, Anne likes to say “no news is good news,” something that’s achievable only when empowering her team to ensure all accounting transactions are processed accurately and timely, financial results are reported to our parent company, and internal controls are rock solid. In addition to over 15 years of accounting and project leadership experience, Anne was a summertime blackjack dealer at Harrah’s Tahoe during her college years and was once a backup singer for Paul Anka. How’s that for a diverse background? See Anne’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Doug Cornille

Doug, a man of many hobbies and even more nicknames, leads all things marketing at Premier Nutrition. An unapologetic foodie, Doug believes in bringing great taste and nutrition to our consumers in every product we create at Premier. Outside of work, you’ll find Doug literally and metaphorically running around the world – clocking miles for upcoming races, traveling to unusual places and soaking in novel experiences with his wife Elise. See Doug’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Brian Hofmeister

Our VP & Chief Information Officer, Brian, is a self-proclaimed computer geek who somehow got tangled up in business work. Brian has always loved taking apart complex systems and making them more useful to the people who use them. That means that at Premier Nutrition, we’re closing the gap between consumer technology solutions and enterprise solutions to get to quicker problem resolution and deeper insights at a moment’s notice. Brian is energized by spending time with his two daughters, snowboarding, and visiting the family farm. When he’s not at work, Brian gives energy back to the community by volunteer teaching at schools in St. Louis. See Brian’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Steve Sernett

As VP of Operations, Steve is responsible for our supply chain and product supply. He continually works to transform our supply chain so Premier Nutrition can be a proactive and responsive organization.  Steve loves working at Premier because the combination of a high-growth company and a supportive culture creates an environment where highly motivated individuals can create their own opportunities, work on the things they’re passionate about, and build their careers – all while having fun! Now that his kids are in college, Steve and his wife have found more time for hiking, dog-walking, dinner parties, weekend getaways and the occasional long road bike ride. See Steve’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Michael Sparda

Our fiery VP of Sales for Food, Drug and Growth Channels, Michael Sparda - aka Sparda, brings an incredible amount of knowledge and a wealth of experience to the PNC Sales Team. A passionate and energetic leader, Sparda is responsible for diversifying our customer base and expanding our product portfolio within retailers. Although Sparda originally hails from New England, he now enjoys his Northern California lifestyle by getting outdoors as often as possible to hike and fish. See Sparda’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Kathleen Beckert

As the VP of Finance, Kathleen is a big driver of Premier’s financial decisions.  She is also a tireless culture advocate and builder. Kathleen gets energized by helping build a cool, welcoming culture here that attracts top talent. Kathleen has been a pioneer of Premier Nutrition’s dog-friendly workplace program and loves to decorate offices in all types of themes including her latest creation of the PowerBar garage... complete with overalls and tools! When it comes to motivation, it’s Kathleen’s Australian Shepherd, Izzy, who gets her out of bed in the morning (literally). See Kathleen’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Howie Miller

As Secretary and General Counsel, Howie leads our legal and regulatory team. He brings 30 years of business and legal experience to PNC where he helps our business units identify, assess, and manage legal and regulatory risk. It’s not all about risk though. Howie is known for his love of flying and obsessive bicycle collection (seriously, we think he has at least 15). When he’s not at the office, Howie gets his energy from family, friends, and fixing stuff. See Howie’s LinkedIn Profile for more.

Eric Hunn

Our coffee-loving, management research-obsessed VP of People, Eric Hunn, strives to bring out the best in each of us every day by redefining the vision of what a people function should be (spoiler alert: it’s not what your grandparents knew as Personnel). Since joining The Good Energy Team, Eric has brought a wealth of knowledge in people development, what works in performance management, and talent acquisition. Eric is a teaching and coach-like leader for the People team. Outside of inspiring our PNC family, Eric enjoys camping with his growing family and running, and is at the forefront of juvenile justice advocacy for his county. (Eric’s LinkedIn Profile)
