Greg McKelvey to Lead Three to Five Year Strategic Growth Plan

DALLAS, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Gregg L. Engles, Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer, Dean Foods Company (NYSE: DF), today announced the
promotion of Greg McKelvey to the newly-created position of EVP and Chief
Strategy and Transformation Officer, effective immediately.

Reporting to Engles, McKelvey will continue to develop the Company’s
strategic planning processes and capabilities, as well as lead the
organization’s transformation efforts.

“This role is critical to Dean Foods as we accelerate our efforts to
consolidate and integrate our many businesses,” said Gregg Engles, Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of Dean Foods.

McKelvey is responsible for designing and delivering Dean Foods’ key
Strategic Growth Plan initiatives, as well as a careful, risk-mitigating
project management approach to initiative implementation, and tight linkage
between strategy and key organizational capabilities, including information
technology.

“Greg’s prior experience at Accenture, Bain & Co., and more recently at
WhiteWave, gives him a unique breadth and depth of experience in both
developing strategy and driving business improvement through the application
of process and technology,” said Engles. “Over the past four years Greg was
instrumental in designing and implementing the WhiteWave strategy to combine
three separate, subscale businesses into a premium national branded business
group with a shared vision, supply chain and process infrastructure.”

Added Engles, “This unique balance of strategy and successful
implementation is critically important in helping us achieve our goals across
Dean Foods. Since January, Greg has continued his track record of strong
leadership by developing Dean Foods’ strategic planning framework and
supporting our efforts to deliver major changes within the organization.”
