Delilah Romo joins Pacific Organic Produce as commodity sales specialist
Delilah Romo is Pacific Organic Produce’s newest commodity sales specialist. “Delilah Romo comes ready to move forward. She has a great background and is perfect for this role,” said Mike Rubidoux, Sales Manager for Pacific Organic Produce.
Romo’s educational legwork started in international business and her career includes working for organic pioneer and leader in quality, Patagonia Orchards.
“Funny enough I started in accounting but realized my direction was sales,” she said. Within six months she redirected her role. One year later Romo was sales manager, overseeing purchasing while also talking with growers.
“I managed fruit from start to finish, picking and harvesting – all the way to sale and loading of fruit," she said. "I analyzed repack profitability, trained, improved warehouse functions and increased efficiency and training. It was a great experience and I loved our growers. My passion is to study and understand market trends, create long lasting relationships and unending opportunities for growers and the communities they serve.”
