One lucky fan has been named as the first-ever Chief Donut Officer for baked goods manufacturer Entenmann's. The Chief Donut Officer Contest launched in timing with National Donut Day in June in search of the person most deserving of the title, determined through fan voting.

Entenmann's has announced that Rana A. of Panama City, Florida is the first-ever Chief Donut Officer, winning the honorary title, as well as  $5,000, a year's supply of donuts, and other prizes.

"I truly am honored to be Entenmann's first Chief Donut Officer," says Rana A.. "To be associated with such a renowned brand that offers an incredible variety of donuts is an honor, and I will wear this title proudly."

Contest entrants were asked to share their love for Entenmann's donuts and ideas for product innovation, with submissions being judged on creativity, passion, and originality. Five finalists were chosen from the field and asked to submit video testimonials about why they deserved the honorary title.

"The first-ever Chief Donut Officer Contest received thousands of submissions from our loyal fans across the country, and picking a winner was not a simple task!" says Jason Amar, Director of Marketing at Entenmann's. "Rana embodies the passion of a true Entenmann's and donut fan, and we're thrilled to have her as our first-ever honorary Chief Donut Officer."
