JOH announced that as of Jan. 1, 2022, Brian Maguire will be the new EVP of Produce, New England Division.
Maguire joined the JOH Produce team in 2001 while he was attending college. Over the past 10 years, he has worked to develop and build its produce business throughout its territories. Additionally, he launched JOH’s commodity produce business, which continues to see “strong” growth, according to the company.
“As we continue to focus on servicing our clients’ and customers’ needs, we pause frequently to discuss, plan and develop our next generation of leaders,” said Matt O’Hare, president and COO. “The Produce Division has seen amazing results since its founding in 1992. It has expanded and attracted passionate and talented associates, and we have become the premier produce broker in the Northeast. Tom Casey, who has led the division since its inception, has done a masterful job building our team.
“As Tom reduces his hours and transitions his EVP role over the next year, Brian will undoubtedly do an outstanding job taking the reins of this leadership position. He has deep knowledge, a strong work ethic, the highest level of integrity and an incredible passion to deliver solutions and results for our clients and customers. Congratulations Brian on this well-deserved promotion!”
In his new role as EVP, Maguire will be managing all operations of the Produce New England Division.
Maguire lives in Hudson New Hampshire and has two children, Emma and Mason. He can be reached at [email protected].
