Mucci Farms Welcomes Mario Testani as Key Account Manager
KINGSVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA - While a seed is at the inception of nearly all things fresh produce, how one cultivates, nourishes, and supports that original intention is key. And, like many fresh produce truths, they also apply to its vision and people. Mucci Farms is elevating its growing roots and skyward momentum this month by welcoming a new team member to the operation. Mario Testani has joined the team this month as a Key Account Manager.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a great company with so many resources, support staff, and regions to service,” Mario shared with me, reflecting on the position. “There are so many great things happening and I’m just excited to be a part of it. I hope to add to the winning formula here and hope some of my experience can offer some new insights for the team.”
In Mario’s role with Mucci, he will be lending his expertise to the sales team as the company continues its rapid expansion into several markets across the continent.
Mario will also be responsible for identifying new customers in new markets as Mucci Farms expands its service regions.
The long-term vision for Mucci Farms is to be North America’s preferred supplier of fresh fruits and vegetables and to expand across the continent. With Mario’s hiring, the company will further align with this vision as it continues on that path and identifies key talent in the industry with the experience to help the team realize those goals.
“Mario is a produce veteran that’s well known around the industry, and we are excited to add his expertise to our team to not only help with growing our customer base, but also mentor some of our younger team members who are in the early stages of their careers,” Steve Zaccardi, Senior Director of Sales, expressed. “To accommodate all of our growth, it’s imperative that our customers continue to receive top-notch service, and being able to add high-level staff will reinforce that commitment. Mario is a great asset that will help Mucci Farms and our partners continue to forge ahead in our mission to maximize access to fresh produce across the continent.”
Mario brings more than 20 years of experience in the produce industry to his new role, primarily in sales, but across commodity planning and logistics as well.
Please help me congratulate Mario on joining the Mucci Farms team. And, to Mucci Farms, hats off to the team as its growth continues to help raise the bar across fresh produce.
