Fru-Veg Marketing, based in Toughkenamon, Pa., recently hired Mike Leone as its new senior account executive, according to a news release.

Leone has worked sales positions in previous roles with John Vena, Inc., and most recently as East Coast sales manager of Giumarra International Berry. His primary focus in those roles was buying and selling berries and other fresh produce commodities.

In his new role with Fru-Veg, Leone plans to continue marketing berries, but he will also expand his range of commodities to include asparagus, clementines, cherries, stone fruit, and value added french beans.

Fru-Veg specializes in importing produce from growers in Europe and South America.
