FPFC names new president
The Fresh Produce & Floral Council board of directors announced that Don Gann has been named the president of the Fresh Produce & Floral Council.
Gann joined the FPFC after spending over 35 years with Stater Bros. Markets. He was brought on to the FPFC staff in October of 2020 as the interim executive director and quickly began diving into the FPFC’s membership and events. Throughout 2020 and 2021, Gann has been working with the board and its committees planning for the future of the FPFC and what the events will look like moving forward. He has made it his top priority to have important conversations and engage with its members to see how the FPFC can continue to bring additional value and inclusion to their membership.
Throughout his conversations within the Industry Gann continues to reach out to regional associations and trade partners alike to explore and synergize relationships that can incorporate additional value within our membership. The most recent example was establishing the FPFC partnership with the California Grocers Association.
“I am very excited to have Don as president," said FPFC 2021 Chairman of the Board Sean McClure of Professional Produce. "His long history of leadership and involvement in our Industry makes him an ideal individual for this role. We have every confidence he will continue to provide a positive impact and I personally look forward to working closely with him driving the association’s goals on behalf of the board for all our members.”
