California-bases Wonderful Citrus has announced that Dan Kass, its managing director for international sales, is leaving the company.
It brings to an end an 11-year stint at the citrus grower-shipper for Kass, although he is expected to remain in the industry in some capacity.
"Wonderful Citrus is an excellent grower, well positioned for the future," said Kass. "I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with such a world-class supplier.
"After spending ten of the last 22 years travelling outside the US and missing way too many family events I'm taking some time off, he added. "Our daughter plays varsity tennis and I have never seen a single match!"
Wonderful Citrus is best known for its Halos-branded mandarins as well as being a supplier of navel and Valencia oranges, lemons, grapefruit, Mexican limes and Southern Hemisphere-sourced citrus.
