Church Bros. personnel moves support foodservice, retail programs
Church Brothers promoted Vicente Alvarez to senior harvest manager, and it also hired Frank Goldner as its director of grower operations based out of the Baja Coast and San Luis Rio Colorado areas.
Alvarez has worked for Church Brothers for nearly 10 years in production analyst and production harvest accountant roles. Alvarez brings a wealth of knowledge on the harvesting side of the business to this new role. His role will expand to manage harvest forecasts, costs, track results against KPIs, and manage harvest team members.
“Vicente’s knowledge and skillset have been instrumental in our harvest operations, his new role will build upon this and help support our strategic growth plans,” said CEO Brian Church.
Goldner has nearly 40 years of experience in the fresh produce industry having worked for companies such as Mann Packing and Tanimura & Antle in operations and general manager roles. Goldner’s role at Church Brothers will focus on increasing efficiency and productivity for the Mexico growing operations through improving processes and collaborating cross-departmentally.
“The Church Brothers del Norte team is excited for Frank to be joining our team; his experience on the Baja coast will be invaluable as we continue to develop that region for our customers,” said Jonathan Harmon, general manager of Mexico.
