L&M is excited to announce the addition of Jon Shriver to the L&M Eastern Veg Team. Jon has been in the produce industry for 14 years. He spent the first eleven years of his career working east coast dry vegetables, specifically focusing on Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan; working state to state as vegetables came into season. More recently, Jon has focused on business development and selling for Mexican vegetables, operating in Nogales, AZ and McAllen, TX.
“We all are very excited to welcome Jon to the L&M veg team, his professionalism, high energy, commitment to service and extensive business experience is a great fit for the company” said Hurley Neer, Sales & Operations Manager for L&M’s Eastern Veg division.
L&M focuses on planting strategically on its farms up and down the east coast in order to provide a constant supply of vegetables from seasonally correct regions; Jon’s experience in these areas will be an excellent complement to L&M’s vegetable program.
Greg Cardamone, L&M’s General Manager for Vegetables and Potatoes, said of Jon’s hiring: “Jon’s knowledge and experience on the east coast as well as Nogales is a perfect match with L&M’s full vegetable program. Jon will incorporate his experience with our team on expanding customer program business, adding further value to our farms, and delivering that value to our customers.”
L&M has been growing vegetables for over 30 years with farms in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey and Michigan, in addition to seasonal Mexican veg – providing customers with an uninterrupted year-round supply.
