Pacific International Marketing Welcomes New Additions to Team, Sara Hansen-Eaton and Matt Cava; Dave Johnson Shares



SALINAS, CA - I know that our industry grows year-round, but there’s something transformative about new growth as we head into spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. Pacific International Marketing recently added two new folks to its team: Sara Hansen-Eaton, Sales Executive, and Matt Cava, Sales Executive and Commodity Manager.

Dave Johnson, President and Owner, Pacific International Marketing“We are happy to have Sara and Matt join our Sales Department—both bring key industry knowledge and relationships to Pacific,” Dave Johnson, President and Owner, remarked on the addition. “They have already become important pieces to our team, fit in great, and we look forward to their contribution and growth here.”

Sara Hansen-Eaton, Sales Executive, Pacific International MarketingIn her new role, Sara will assist with accounts, where she will be deep in the day-to-day tasks of the fast-paced environment. When asked about what she most looks forward to in this position, she noted that she can't wait to learn more and grow her career in produce sales.

Her entry into the fresh produce world began when she was just 17, when her father hired her to help file at Cool Pacific. She quickly learned to dispatch and eventually found herself filling in the Sales Department at Pacific when others were out of the office. She would then go on to a full-time position as an Assistant and remained with the company for 13 years before furthering her career at another local grower/shipper in 2017.

When Sara was approached to come back to Pacific this February, it was an easy yes for her. She always felt she would come back “home” to work with a team that already felt like family.

Matt Cava, Sales Executive and Commodity Manager, Pacific International MarketingIn Matt’s new role, he will be working closely with the field team to manage information regarding yields, quality, and Pacific’s conventional celery program. In addition to these tasks, he will be taking on various sales responsibilities. Matt is most looking forward to taking the torch and continuing to run with the program laid before him.

Matt was born and raised in Salinas, California, and has produce in his blood. He interned with Tanimura & Antle while studying Agribusiness at California Polytechnic State University.

From there, Matt moved on to work for Sun World in Coachella. His most recent position was with Mann Packing before he took up this role with Pacific.

Congratulations to both Sara and Matt on these new roles! We can’t wait to hear what’s next for the team.
