They’re based at RPE’s Monte Vista, Colo., office.
Canon Potato recently announced its closure. Glowczewski worked in the sales department there for 18 years. Tonso spent almost 30 years at Canon, according to a news release.
Tonso has served as a member and chairman of the potato section of the United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association, and as a member and vice chairman of the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee.
“RPE has had so much growth and they’re doing such dynamic things,” Tonso said in the release. “It fits right into what I want to do and am looking for.”
RPE ships potatoes and onions year round.
