Mission Produce has announced the promotion of Stephen Fink to director of sales planning.
Fink has been with Mission Produce for the past five years, most recently as a sales representative, after previously serving as an inventory analyst.
In his new position, Fink will work with Mission’s sales, operations and sourcing teams on overall demand management for the company, where he will manage the company’s short- and intermediate-term sales planning activities.
“Mission has grown dramatically in the past few years, and our ability to service our customers as we grow is our highest priority,” Fink explained. “With my background in inventory management and sales, my goal is to improve our overall performance and satisfaction levels with our customer base.”
Fink will report to Brent Scattini, vice president of sales and marketing at Mission. Scattini said the company was adding depth to its sales management and planning processes in order to enhance its position in the avocados category.
“Managing demand at the customer level is a strategic area of focus for Mission, and this position will magnify our capabilities,” said Scattini.
