Flanagan Foodservice names Bonnie Donovan as President F.J. Wadden & Sons Ltd.


After 26 years of service, Peter Rose is retiring from his role as President of F.J. Wadden.  Bonnie Donovan, who is from Newfoundland & Labrador, will be taking over the position effective October 17th and will report to Dan Lafrance, President/CEO of Flanagan Foodservice.


Bonnie, a Memorial University graduate, has extensive leadership experience in senior roles in operations and logistics over many years in the beverage industry in her home province and more recently in the cannabis industry across Canada.   


Her business acumen and leadership skills will be invaluable as we focus on providing our customers and business partners with the best possible products, solutions and services to meet their unique needs. 


F.J. Wadden & Sons was founded in 1907 and operated by the Wadden family until its acquisition by Flanagan Foodservice in 2020.  The company continues to be a proud family owned Canadian company distributing food and beverage products across Newfoundland.


Bonnie is excited to work with the team to build upon this extraordinary legacy and to help lead the company to the next level.
