Lone Star Citrus Growers Hires Jacob Jordan to Boost Sales Team, TJ Flowers Discusses
MISSION, TX - Lone Star Citrus Growers (LSGC) is adding some oomph to its sales force this season. The company recently hired Jacob Jordan—whose time spent in Texas A&M University’s Aggies for Fresh program gives the recent grad a solid foundation in understanding ag and a big leap ahead into citrus sales.
"I was excited to join the LSCG team because it offers a career that allows me to be involved in production agriculture as well as sales,” said Jacob. “The LSCG family was another reason I decided to start my career where I did; the quality of people within this company is unlike anywhere else I’ve seen. It has been an absolute blessing having had the opportunity to work here at LSCG."
Jacob graduated from Texas A&M last year with a degree in business leadership, and as Lone Star Citrus continues to grow on an annual basis, increasing its sales activity along the way, the company has made it a priority to hire additional team members capable of learning the company's systems from the ground up and, ultimately, cultivating their own accounts.
"Jacob's youth, work ethic, and eagerness to learn make him valuable even at such an early stage in his career,” said T.J. Flowers, VP Operations. “Additionally, his personality and friendly demeanor fit well within the sales team. As is the case with any team atmosphere, chemistry is important, and in a sales office, how team members work together is a critical component to success. We look forward to his development into a fully trained salesman."
The addition of Jacob to the team will, LSGC notes, allow the company to both better serve its existing partners and take on new customers, as well.
The AndNowUKnow team congratulates Jacob on his new role; we wish you and the whole Lone Star Citrus team the best in all your endeavors!
