Familiar face rejoins Monterey Mushrooms' sales team
Jill Moran, a long-time Monterey Mushrooms employee, re-joined the sales team as a sales manager based out of Watsonville, CA. Moran will manage fresh mushroom sales for retail and foodservice customers in the western region.
In this role, Moran will be responsible for the sales of mushrooms grown, packed and shipped from the company's farms in Royal Oaks and Morgan Hill, CA, which grow, harvest and pack conventional and organic white, Baby Bella and Portabella mushrooms.
For the past three years, Moran has been the operations manager at the Monterey Mushrooms Royal Oaks farm. No stranger to mushroom sales, Moran has 15 years of experience in customer service. “I am looking forward to re-connecting with our customers and helping them grow their mushroom category to the best that it can be,” she said.
“Moran brings a unique balance of customer service and farm operations to this key role,” said Mike Stephan, sales director. “Her local-market knowledge, coupled with first-hand experience in operations will benefit the customers she will serve.”
Outside of work, Moran can be found volunteering, and she currently holds the position of president for her local grange, which serves her small town as the local non-profit social hub for community breakfasts, lunches, concerts and hall rentals. She loves spending time with her children and grandkids. You can often find her in her garden or cooking up a delicious meal for friends and family.
