40 Under 40: Cass Tenney


Company: Four Foods Group
Title: Brand Controller
Age: 33
City: Pleasant Grove

CAREER ANTHEM “Hall of Fame” by The Script

LINER NOTES Cass Tenney rises and dominates wherever she goes. After graduating from Boise State University during the 2008 recession, she landed a job as an assistant getting coffee. Five years later, she left that company as an accounting manager. After moving to Utah in 2014, she started at Four Foods Group as a staff accountant. Today? She’s the Brand Controller for their largest division, Little Caesars, and has seen the company acquire four new brands, grow from 19 stores to 150 locations, and seen the FFG HQ staff triple in size. P.S. Tenney is wearing a vintage Reba shirt! Fancy definitely didn’t let us down, y’all.

FAVORITE MUSIC GENRE “Country music for sure … I’m from Idaho.”

FAVORITE LYRIC “Don’t stop believin’” — Journey

CAREER HIGH NOTE “Definitely the last eight months as I welcomed my first child to the world. I’ve always wanted to be a mother AND successful in my career. So far I’ve been able to be there for my son and haven’t missed a beat at the office — none of which would be possible without the support of my husband and my amazing team at FFG.”

BEATING TO MY OWN DRUM “I have been called a bulldog because I get sh** done! There is no obstacle too great to overcome.”

MY FORTE “Innovation. I’m an organizer, so if I’m tasked with something painful my first thought is always how to improve it. There is always a better way.”

DREAM RECORD “I want to make everyone around me better because I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guidance from my leaders. I can’t thank Andrew and Shauna Smith enough for the opportunities they’ve given me. It’s been one hell of a ride.”
