- by Jordan Okumura
SALINAS, CA - Ippolito International has expanded its sales team with the addition of two new members, Monica Guidotti and Katie Culver.
Guidotti, who was most recently employed by the Salinas-based Duda Farm Fresh Foods, will now be handling both sales and commodity management of bok choy, napa, beets, kale, endive and escarole. Guidotti has more than 25 years of produce industry experience in outside purchasing and accounting, including additional roles with Ready Pac, Fresh Express, and Sysco.
Culver, who has worked as an Accounting Associate at Ippolito for the past year, has now been promoted to the role of Sales Coordinator. Culver is a 2013 graduate of California State University, Chico.
Ippolito International’s General Manager, Butch Corda, says he and the company are pleased to add Monica and Katie to its sales staff.
“Monica with her experience will help round out our team, and Katie will be learning the ropes from the ground up,” Corda, tells me. “I particularly enjoy mentoring young people in the office and helping them to understand all the variables that come into play in our industry. Between weather, labor and other market factors there is much to learn that cannot be taught in any school room setting.”
