Oppy Appoints Maryam Ahoo as Sales Representative in Alberta
VANCOUVER, CANADA – Making moves to further its presence in Western Canada, the Oppenheimer Group has announced a recent addition to its sales team. With an eye on strengthening its full-service marketing and distribution, Oppy has appointed Maryam Ahoo as Sales Representative in its Calgary location.
Maryam joined the Oppy team at the end of last month, bringing with her a wealth of sales and marketing experience, along with educational qualifications. Most recently, Maryam worked as a Membership Development Representative with agri-business trade association Farmers of North America.
In July of last year, Maryam presented at the 20th International Farm Management Congress in Quebec. At the same time, Maryam published a thesis on supply chain management, and participated in case study research on the role of fresh fruit and vegetables within a top Western Canadian retailer. These experiences, stated Oppy, uniquely prepared Maryam for her sales role at Oppy.
“We are excited to welcome someone with Maryam’s unique blend of education and practical experience to our Calgary sales team,” said Steve Young, Oppy’s Director of Canadian Sales. “Her knowledge and expertise position her well to enhance our service to customers throughout the Prairie region.”
According to a press release, Maryam recently received her Masters of Science degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Saskatchewan. There, Maryam focused on agri-business and marketing, while also serving as a research assistant and teaching assistant in the University’s Department of Bio-resource Policy, Business, and Economics.
Maryam received her Bachelor’s degree in Agri-business from the University of Tehran, Iran. Afterwards, she went on to receive a number of positions in the agribusiness sector. This included Gooshtiran Food, where Maryam oversaw aspects of procurement, production, logistics, and distribution.
As Oppy continues to further bolster its Calgary team, the company is offering Oppy’s full assortment of produce through the location. This includes a focus on kiwifruit, apples, melons, cucumbers, and more.
