Verdafresh names Dave Klopp Chief Executive Officer

Verdafresh announced that Dave Klopp was promoted to Chief Executive Officer effective August 12, 2022. He is a packaging industry veteran with over 25 years of experience; specializing in film making, converting, rigid packaging, private label packaging integration, P&L, and corporate development. Dave graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor’s degree in Food Marketing Management.

As Verdafresh continues its growth under Dave’s leadership, co-founder Fred Levitt will support technology transfer to Verdafresh customers and continue to serve on the company’s Board of Directors.

Since its initial investment, Rhapsody Venture Partners has worked closely with the executive team to execute on key strategic priorities. Dave’s transition to CEO, along with the hiring of Joe Raker as COO in June, gives Verdafresh an exceptional leadership team, to which RVP will continue to provide financial and strategic support.
