Gold Coast Packing Inc., Santa Maria, Calif., hired Brent Scattini as its new vice president of sales.
Scattini came directly from Grimmway Farms, Bakersfield, Calif., as director of sales for the western region in May.
He was there for 12 years, but has 20 years of produce sales and marketing experience altogether, according to a news release. Other companies for which he has worked include Associated Produce Distributors, California Tomato Commission and Meyer Tomatoes.
“We’re all really excited about the opportunity to grow and for him to lead his sales team,” said John Schaefer, vice president and general manager of the company.
