Los Angeles wholesaler Valley Fruit & Produce has hired Don Stalcup to oversee all aspects of retail management as the new division manager.

“We already have a good team in place, but we are excited that Don’s leadership will lead to the development of additional services, in addition to improving our existing ones, to help our customers grow their produce business,” chief financial officer Carrie La Londe said in a news release.

Stalcup has 46 years of retail produce experience, including 25 years at Albertsons as head of the produce department and the corporate trainer.

He worked as vice president of produce for Food 4 Less and for KV Mart before joining Valley Produce.
