St George holds positions on the International Fresh Produce Association’s marketing council and the Southeast Produce Council Southern Roots women’s committee, and previously served on various United Fresh, Produce Marketing Association and Fresh Produce & Floral Council committees, as well as the UC Davis Cal Aggie Alumni Association board. 

“We are very excited to have Kim join to lead our Western sales team,” said Emanuel Lazopoulos, senior VP of sales and marketing at Dole Fresh Vegetables.

“She brings decades of leadership experience, established relationships and produce knowledge across a broad set of roles and organizations. Coupled with her enthusiasm, Dole Fresh Vegetables is well positioned for continued success.”
