Produce marketer Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet welcomes Amy Gates as vice-president.
Amy has been in the produce business for more than 21 years and will initially focus on implementing new ERP and WMS computer systems (given her IT experience) and then will be very active in all facets of the business going forward.
Amy’s experience in the produce industry started at Famous Software (for five years) after graduating from college in California. Afterwards, she joined the team at Frontera Produce for 16 years, beginning in operations and advanced to being president and senior executive.
This underlines her commitment as she is purpose driven and a passionate leader. “Through strategic planning and development, Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet has stayed at the forefront of this dynamic industry, continuing its success under the leadership of Mayda Sotomayor. I am excited to work for a company looking to the future while being grounded in Florida’s rich citrus history,” said Amy.
“Amy will enhance the company’s progressive growth with her experience and knowledge. She will be an instrumental part of our management team and we look forward to the energy and talent she will bring to our company,” says Mayda Sotomayor, CEO of Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet.
