SANTA CRUZ, CA - One of the foundational elements to growing a successful company is the roots that give it strength. And Awe Sum Organics is digging its roots deep this summer with the addition of industry veteran Jon Kiley as a Sales Account Manager.
“I am extremely excited to get back to my organic heritage and join a progressive, growing company with such high-quality fruit offerings,” Kiley shared. “I’m looking forward to working with the Awe Sum Team and customers while we navigate through the current challenges of COVID-19. Organics and fruit are both trending upward, creating a perfect scenario for us to take advantage of.”
Bringing extensive produce sales experience and more than 25 years working with customers in retail and foodservice, Kiley plans to impact Awe Sum’s sales prowess in a big way in his new role.
