He returned to Perdue Foods in 2013 as Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, and he was named Executive Vice President of Operations a year later. In 2015, he was promoted to President of Perdue Foods.

Randy received his bachelor of science degree in biology from Western Maryland College. He earned a master's degree in poultry nutrition from the University of Maryland-College Park. He also completed the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard Business School.  Randy served on the Board of Directors of the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association, on the Executive Committee of the National Turkey Federation and on the Technical and Regulatory Committee of the National Chicken Council. He currently serves on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for the National Chicken Council.
