Sep 9, 2015Riveridge Produce Marketing expands staff as apple season ramps up
Riveridge Produce Marketing started the past year with a 25 year anniversary and they continue to build momentum in 2015 by adding seasoned produce veterans and industry newcomers with extensive subject matter expertise to nearly every department at the corporate office.
“While many things have changed making us more efficient over our 25-year history, like technology, varieties and planting techniques, the heart of our business has remained consistent. As we grow and expand, it is important that we are just as accessible and knowledgeable as when we first started,” said Don Armock, Riveridge president. “The expanded team helps us continue our mission to provide first-class service to our customers and be a fully-engaged partner to our growers and packers.”
The Riveridge sales team added three members to its staff in recent weeks. Tom Curtis is a new account manager with apples in his blood. Trish Taylor also joins as an Account Manager with a marketing communications focus. New Sales Assistant, Jackie Dyer, joins from NUK USA and previously Gerber Products Company.
As regulations change and flex, Aaron Debski has a crucial role as food safety manager and quality assurance. He spent more than a decade at Jack Brown Produce in multiple roles including shipping and receiving and managing the packing line. After a stint with Riveridge last apple harvest, Jeremy Butler returns full time as a logistics/sales support assistant. He will be part of the roster ensuring trucks are scheduled and compliant.
Sydney Grove joined as the assistant director of accounting. Jenna Kimball started with Riveridge last fall as an accounting clerk and was recently promoted to an accounting and human resources assistant.
