Ice Cream CEO

Brian Kerr, CPA, CA, discovered his passion for business and food at age 11, while working at Kawartha Dairy in his hometown of Bobcaygeon, Ontario.

After earning a Bachelor of Accounting degree and his CPA designation, he spent 19 years with Kraft Foods, working in finance, sales and marketing roles before becoming Chief Marketing Officer.

A chance meeting with the owner of Kawartha Dairy, who had encouraged a young Brian to pursue his education, saw Brian return to the company as Chief Executive Officer.

We recently sat down with Brian to discuss his professional journey, his tips for a successful career and, of course, his favourite ice cream flavour.
