Lakeside Organic Welcomes Hugo Raygoza and Jordan Stidham to the Sales Team
WATSONVILLE, CA – Lakeside Organic Gardens is expanding its sales team with the addition of Hugo Raygoza and Jordan Stidham.
Raygoza, a 15-year Costco Wholesale veteran and lifelong Watsonville resident, is an experienced merchandising professional with experience in customer service and driving sales. The company says that his diverse background is a perfect match to help build its organic produce business.
Prior to joining Lakeside, Stidham spent 13 years in the hospitality business at Palapas, a local Santa Cruz County restaurant. He received a Bachelors’ Degree in Humanities and Communication from California State University Monterey Bay and a Master’s Degree from Liberty University.
Brian Peixoto, Lakeside’s Sales Manager, said in a press release that with their addition, the sales team would be able to better focus on the needs of their customers.
“Hiring people new to the organic industry is something I strongly believe in,” said Peixoto. “Being able to train and mold someone into the employee we want to represent our company is much easier when you have a clean slate. We are looking forward to the future of our sales team and Lakeside Organic Gardens as a whole.”
Both Raygoza and Stidham are excited to start their new positions, and will be joining Brian Peixoto, Kyle Villhauer, Nando Marquez, and Randy Craney on Lakeside Organic Gardens’ sales team.
