Steven Surmay - Senior VP of Co-Pack Operations

“Shearer’s provides a great platform for people to elevate not just their careers, but their lives.” –Steven Surmay

Steven started his career with us as a warehouse laborer in 1982. Since then, he’s been with us for some of our more notable growth milestones, including the design, engineering, construction and operations of a major expansion in 1998. This expansion doubled our size, and this growth led to us being recognized as Snack Food Manufacturer of the year in 2000.

Steve’s also plays a major role in our relationship with Frito-Lay and was the lead in opening our first off-site production expansion to Lubbock, TX in 2007. In his 35-year history at Shearer’s Snacks, Steve has exemplified just what hard work, teamwork and respect can accomplish as a part of our team.

Today, Steve provides leadership for Shearer’s Frito-Lay co-packing partnership, including production, innovation, engineering, maintenance, sanitation and quality assurance.

Steve resides in Ohio with his wife Stacie and daughter Sophia.
