California-based Pro Citrus Network (PCN), a global supplier of high-quality fresh citrus, has announced the addition of two significant positions to their sales and marketing team, appointing two industry veterans as vice-presidents.
Kim Flores has joined the company as vice-president of marketing and business development, effective today (May 8), while Christine Raymer will join the team as vice-president of sales on 22 May.
According to PCN, the new positions and addition of Flores and Raymer bring new depth to PCN’s team, further strengthening its multi-coast operations as the company enters another year of projected growth and expansion of programmes.
“It is an honour to be a member of PCN’s team, which has a fantastic culture, strong values and a great reputation for integrity and quality, especially among the customers and growers it serves,” said Flores, who will develop and lead the company’s marketing and promotional strategies to support and advance new and existing programmes.
Raymer joins PCN with tenure of over 21 years in the industry and a wide range of experience and leadership in the global fresh produce arena, including exports and imports of citrus, grapes, stone fruit and other commodities.
As a former client of PCN, Raymer stated: “As a customer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the PCN team for over a decade, while expanding citrus programmes. I am incredibly excited to be joining such an exceptional company, dedicated to providing customers with quality, value and great service.”
Raymer will lead PCN’s sales team with focus on growth of the company’s retail, foodservice and export programmes of domestic and imported citrus, along with future development of other commodity lines.
