May 6, 2019Schuld retires from Summit Tree Sales in Michigan
Katherine Schuld, vice president and co-owner of Summit Tree Sales in Paw Paw, Michigan, retired at the end of April 2019. Schuld began at Summit in 2004 having previously worked for Hilltop Orchards and Nurseries and Whirlpool Corp. During her time at Summit, Schuld expanded marketing efforts, broadened the customer base and established important new industry relationships.
“One of the greatest parts of working in the tree fruit industry are the exceptional people you get to know, and Katie is the perfect example of this,” said Neal Manly of Regal Fruit International. “Katie’s organization, attention to detail and follow through have made her a ‘go to’ person when ordering trees. She has done a great job in representing both the grower and the nursery and will surely be missed.”
Schuld said of her work at Summit, “The most enjoyable part of my work was getting to know growers. The people in this industry are tremendous, and I’m grateful for the friendships I’ve been fortunate to form.”
