GM Produce Sales LLC has added longtime mango salesman Tom Argyros to its sales staff.
Argyros joins the Hidalgo, Texas, Mexican mangos importer with more than 24 years produce industry experience, including work for Splendid Products LLC, Burlingame, Calif., Diazteca Co., Nogales, Ariz., and most recently, L&M Cos. Inc., in Raleigh, N.C.
Argyros’ extensive knowledge of the Mexican mango industry helped developed his reputation as one of the mango trade’s top salesman, Wade Shiba, GM Produce’s president and managing partner, said in a news release.
Argyros has managed and grown relations with some of the largest retail chain stores and has also developed programs and pricing initiatives to help customers achieve steadier supplies throughout the season, Shiba said in the release.
“His experience has helped many retailers forecast supply and develop product promotions making him a great asset to any produce buyer,” Shiba said in the release. “Tom’s experience will help us target new business and supply our larger retail customers on a more consistent basis. We see an opportunity for more growth with Tom as an addition.”
