Watsonville, California-based Procurant has named 30-year industry solutions veteran Ian Grow to the senior leadership team as VP of strategic accounts.
“When you combine the best technology and the best people, you can really accelerate the benefits your customers receive,” said Eric Peters, CEO.
“That’s exactly what we try to do here at Procurant, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome Ian to the team.”
Grow brings to Procurant his experience in sales and sales management, most recently at iTradeNetwork where he was EVP and head of enterprise sales working with large food retailers throughout North America. He has also held executive roles at FIS, Advent Software and Thomson Reuters, and spent the early years of his career with AT&T and Motorola.
Procurant offers retail grocers and their suppliers a web-based procurement and food safety solution that connects all suppliers and stakeholders across the perishable goods supply chain.

Retail grocers, such as Albertsons Cos. and Merchants Distributors, used Procurant solutions to manage billions of dollars of fresh produce and floral commodities across thousands of stores and distribution centers.
In addition, Procurant’s food safety and task management solutions were used at more than 1,500 foodservice locations, warehouses, retail stores, cafeterias and restaurants around the world.
