John McGuigan Leaving Dulcinea/Pacific Trellis Fruit
- by Christofer Oberst
LADERA RANCH, CA - Dulcinea/Pacific Trellis Fruit Manager John McGuian has announced that he will be parting ways with the company at the end of August.
A Pacific Trellis company representative thanked John for his commitment to the company and his many years of service:
“John, a 25 year veteran of the produce industry, has been a great asset to the company since his joining. He was of great assistance to us on this latest acquisition, helping us to transition it from a public company structure to a more market and grower focused operation.”
John shared similar feelings about his time with the company in a press release.
“I have had the great fortune to work for outstanding organizations and help get them positioned for success for the future. I know that the team will do great things with Dulcinea Farms going forward, and I wish them all the success in the world.”
While Pacific Trellis and Dulcinea Farms will no doubt miss him, John leaves it in a position of strength. According to a press release, Pacific Trellis is experiencing its best yield ever in Mexico and a similarly great harvest in Arizona. Although, like many in the produce industry, it has felt the pressure of the water crisis in California, its harvest in the San Joaquin Valley has also been strong with increases in both yield and acreage.
In light of this success, Pacific Trellis Fruit has created a new position for Research and Development, naming former Syngenta employee Paul Collazo to the job. Pacific Trellis is confident Paul's work will help them maintain its advantage with both its existing and new proprietary melon varieties.
Pacific Trellis has also decided to retain 8 year Dulcinea Farms veteran Steve Dabich as Director of Sales.
“I look forward to the continued expansion in the years to come as the premier branded melon supplier in the industry,” he said.
