Sun-Glo of Idaho has hired potato industry veteran Tron Crumley to its sales team.
“My career has been single-mindedly focused on the potato industry. I am also the grandson of Idaho potato farmers, so selling potatoes is in my blood,” Crumley said. “Sun-Glo’s level of customer service makes a positive difference to the bottom line. I’m looking forward to being an integral part of this service-forward, family-oriented business, working closely with the Sun-Glo team to unlock further sales opportunities.”
Crumley joins the Sugar-City, Idaho-based Sun-Glo team with nearly 25 years of potato industry experience having lead sales of both fresh and dehydrated potatoes for Idaho-based produce companies like Nonpareil, RPE and most recently Pro-Heath. Now Crumley will build upon Sun-Glo’s retail, wholesale and foodservice sales programs.
“I love that each season brings something new; different volume, sizes and quality,” he said. “Couple that with the changing landscape of the industry, and the possibilities are endless.”
“Tron’s deep industry knowledge and connections will help us fulfill our ongoing mission to serve our customers by delivering extraordinary customer service and quality potatoes,” said Sun-Glo’s VP of Sales Jill Cox. “As a fourth generation farmer, we understand the importance of fresh potatoes to the retail and foodservice industries and strive to innovate our fresh product portfolio. Tron¹s leadership and experience will help us deliver even more value to our customers. The Crapo family enthusiastically welcomes him to the Sun-Glo team.”
“We are delighted to increase the sales and customer service capabilities of the Network with Tron’s new position at Sun-Glo,” said Kathleen Triou, president & CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “We are constantly evolving, elevating customer service standards and pushing innovation boundaries. Tron is a great fit.”
