Two experienced saleswomen joined The Packer staff, and two others staffers earned promotions in late September.

Laurie Marinone (left) is the new saleswoman for the East Coast territory, and she will be based in Massachusetts. Marinone brings years of integrated sales experience with business-to-business media, primarily covering the pharmaceutical industry.

Elizabeth Cherry (right) joins as saleswoman for the Central Valley and Northern California territory, and will be based in the Los Angeles area. Cherry’s previous sales experience includes working for Progressive Grocer, which gives her good food and produce experience.

Gage Rohwer, our former Southern California salesman, will move into the Midwest territory.

Joelle Stephens is promoted to Produce Sales Operations Manager, assuming the management of the Produce Market Guide Listings/Ratings staff. She will also focus on assisting with revenue growth through special projects.
