Under Rollís tenure, Kellogg continued its 20 consecutive years of growth in revenues and earnings. Through strategic acquisitions of Salada and Fearn, international expansion, and new product introductions (most notably Eggo Frozen Waffles and Frosted Mini-Wheats), Roll tripled revenues from $213 million to $677 million, and earnings from $17 million to $55 million.
