Danner, formerly chief operating officer for Kansas City, Kan.-based Liberty Fruit Co., said part of what made Premier Produce attractive to him is its double-digit growth in the past couple of years. He said the company was founded about four years ago and is strictly a foodservice supplier.
Premier specializes in high-end restaurants and hotels, supplying a full line of produce and dairy products, Danner said. He plans to begin his new duties July 29.
“They are all about customer service,” Danner said.
Danner had worked at Liberty Fruit for a decade. Before that he worked for Fleming Foods, C&S Wholesale and Cross River Produce.
