“Jeff’s background as a public company CEO, combined with his extensive experience in corporate finance, will be instrumental in establishing DayDayCook in the U.S. financial markets” said Norma Chu, DayDayCook’s founder and CEO. “With our recently announced acquisitions, we are expecting significant growth in our U.S. operations as we expand distribution and improve time-to-market for our brands. Jeff’s experience in managing acquisition integration and capital needs of a fast-growing company, as well as his experience managing investor engagement, will be instrumental in our journey to become an Asian food powerhouse.”

Mr. Ervin has more than 20 years of experience in senior corporate and financial roles.

Earlier, Mr. Ervin was VP of Finance for the Baptist Hospital System, where he sourced and performed diligence on private equity investment opportunities. He received his M.B.A from Vanderbilt University and his B.S. in finance from Miami University.

“DayDayCook is an exciting organization and its brands represent Norma’s magnetic personality and mission for the Company,” said Jeffrey S. Ervin. “The Company is positioned for growth in a fragmented Asian food category at a time when consumers increasingly seek access to quality products that deliver nutrition and value. I am grateful for the opportunity to join a distinguished team at a pivotal time in the Company’s growth strategy.”
