(April 18) A West Sacramento, Calif.-based wholesaler says it is tweaking its top management.
JC Produce LLC, a member of the Pro*Act distribution network, announced April 2 it had appointed Willem Drost as its president, John Tedesco as vice chairman and chief financial officer, Randy Metheny as manager of corporate procurement and purchasing personnel, and Mike Reisenweber as director of corporate information technology.
