Houweling's Group Brings Todd Plaxton on in Sales Management Position
- by Lillie Apostolos
CAMARILLO, CA – On the sixth day of Christmas, Houweling’s Group said to me... It is closing out 2017 on a good note by welcoming Todd Plaxton to its Sales Management team. Now, that's the kind of holiday carol I like to celebrate!
“Todd brings the skillset, dedication, and drive that is required in our industry. His experience within the greenhouse sector enables him to hit the ground running, while also bringing a solid business approach,” said Mike Reed, the company’s EVP Sales, in a recent press release.
Plaxton’s experience is wide-ranging, having held positions at blue chip organizations outside of the industry at Nestle Foods, and at produce industry organizations such as Star Produce and The Oppenheimer Group. With so much telling experience, Plaxton is jumping into his new position with both feet.
“I have always had a tremendous respect for Houweling’s, and their reputation in the industry as an innovator and quality grower. At the same time, the company has evolved with the changing retail landscape. Major retailers continue to adjust and address their supply chain, favoring a direct relationship with growers. Houweling’s has done a tremendous job at fostering these retail relationships, and I look forward to building on the upward trend with my accounts,” said Plaxton in the same press release. “Service is critical in this business. I advocate for my customers and ensure I am proactive to address issues well before they ever appear on my customer’s radar. While it sounds simple, this business isn’t. Constant care and attention is needed to deliver first-time customer service.”
Not only is Houweling’s excited to bring Plaxton on deck, but it sounds like Plaxton is off to the races in his efforts to further establish customer satisfaction by addressing consumers’ needs attentively. With the addition of Plaxton to the sales management family, we at AndNowUKnow wish Houweling’s Group and its over 200 acres of greenhouse farms every success the industry has to offer.
