Alsum Farms & Produce Inc., a fresh market grower, packer and shipper of Wisconsin grown potatoes, onions and provider of fresh, quality produce, announces the recent addition of Gary Stevens as director of sales & business development.
Stevens rejoins Alsum after working in the specialty meats category. In his new position, Stevens will procure and service national and retail, foodservice and wholesale grocer accounts.
“Alsum Farms & Produce is excited to have Gary rejoin our team in this new role,” says Heidi Alsum-Randall, COO – production and sales of Alsum Farms & Produce. “His knowledge of the produce industry coupled with his wide array of work experiences in business development, sales and customer relations make Gary a perfect fit.”
Stevens brings more than two decades of experience in the produce industry to Alsum Farms & Produce. He began his career with A&P as a produce manager, worked with Albert‘s Organics, Herbthyme Farms and served as the organic team lead at Sunfed. Most recently, he worked with national accounts at Pederson’s Natural Farms.
This week is Steven’s first opportunity to reconnect with produce peers in-person at SEPC Southern Exposure in Orlando, FL. He will be in the Alsum Farms & Produce booth no. 527 alongside Alsum’s Doug Posthuma. As a first-time exhibitor to the show, the Wisconsin-based grower and shipper looks forward to connecting in person and virtually.
“I am excited to be back in produce, reconnect with peers and look forward to helping Alsum Farms & Produce on business development initiatives to grow our presence in the fresh potato and onion categories, and beyond,” Stevens says. “Being at an SEPC event like Southern Exposure is like a homecoming in so many welcoming ways.”
