HOUSTON, TX - Brothers Produce Chief Innovation Officer Brent Erenwert moved up to Chief Executive Officer this month, taking the reins as the company continues to expand in various areas. The newly-named CEO took the time to chat with me about the direction he sees for the company, as well as some of the growth already in the works for 2018.

Brent Erenwert, CEO, Brothers Produce“I expect 2018 to be one of our biggest growth years in packages to put through the company,” Brent starts when I ask about the months ahead. “What we're doing now is evolving. Amazon started with books, and will always sell books, but look at them now. At Brothers, we have grown to be a major logistics and service company that sells produce. That's what we were founded on, and that's what we will continue to do.”

Through his former role as Chief Innovation Officer, Brent told me he has been hands on in all aspects of the company’s brand and marketing. Taking that a step further in this new role, he sees a surge of items Brothers Produce will be carrying, both in produce and non-produce items.

“We’ll be enhancing and introducing fresh items in schools and hospitals, particularly, and I’m already looking for a separate space for the recent cold chain expansion we just had. I have a feeling cold storage will be one of the biggest growing segments to come, and that is another area we are currently looking to grow,” Brent shares.

Not only does Brothers plan to grow in those areas, but in the team to operate within those spaces.

With 110 refrigerated trucks in Houston, Texas, plans to grow in fresh distribution, and the pursuit of another facility, Brent says that the sales staff will also expand this year.

“It all comes back to that service. You can have the quality and the price, but if you don’t deliver when you say that you will, then the quality and price won’t be there. At the end of the day that's what we are—the company that will bring the best we can in produce and more.”

Congratulations, Brent, on this new role and all that is ahead!
