Ippolito International, a grower-shipper of a full line of premium fresh vegetables from California, Arizona and Mexico, has added produce industry veteran Steve Timsak to its Salinas, CA, sales team.

"I had the pleasure of working with Steve early in our careers at Oshita Company for over 10 years, and added another five with him while we were both at Growers Vegetable Express," Butch Corda, general manager of Ippolito International, said in a press release. "We went on our different paths and now here we are 16 years later reuniting to build upon our already strong relationship. It's great to get such a highly respected, experienced veteran such as Steve to join us here."

Mr. Timsak brings more than 25 years of experience in selling the full line of quality vegetables offered at Ippolito International.

"This company is under the radar and has a lot of potential," said Mr. Timsak. "The ground base is located in highly desirable areas, the customer base and product line are all very solid. I've been selling produce for 30 years, and I am extremely happy to be here."
