Giumarra has added Kellee Harris to its marketing team. She joins the company today as western region business manager.
Harris comes to Giumarra from Package Containers Inc., where her responsibilities included business development and account management for the California, Utah and Colorado regions. She also has held positions in the nonprofit and sporting goods sectors, with an emphasis on marketing and sales.
“Kellee has an impressive background of results-proven work both inside and outside the produce industry,” says Hillary Brick, SVP of marketing for the Giumarra Cos. “Her knowledge of customer accounts and strong history of project execution will make her a vital new member of our marketing team.”
Harris will be based in Portland and will manage key customer accounts in the western region of the U.S. and Canada, marketing Giumarra’s complete product line and developing new promotions and strategies. She also will represent the company at industry trade shows and events and will be responsible for spearheading the marketing efforts of Giumarra’s Southern Hemisphere and Reedley sales divisions.
“I am honored to join the progressive team at Giumarra, whose family legacy of integrity and quality is known and respected throughout the fresh produce industry,” says Harris. “The company and its network of domestic and international growers are poised for continued growth and I look forward to working with them on new, innovative ideas in marketing, merchandising and packaging.”
