Fresh produce marketer Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet has revealed that it is saying farewell to Michael Walsh, who will be retiring at the end of August.

Walsh joined the company as an account executive and brought a wealth of knowledge with him, according to the group.

“Michael has had a stellar sales career at Seald Sweet and it has been an honour having had him as part of our team,' said Mayda Sotomayor, Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet chief executive. 'We are proud that he elected to finish his career at Seald Sweet, and only wish him the best.”
