Monterey Mushrooms names new Eastern sales director
Leslie Harden has been promoted to eastern region sales director for Monterey Mushrooms. She will manage fresh retail and foodservice mushroom sales, including the company's locations in Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Florida.
Harden succeeds Mike Stephan, who is assuming the role of western region sales director, which includes farms in Texas and California.
Based out of Florida, Harden has been with the company since 2008, most recently serving as fresh sales manager. In her new role, she will target volume growth with key customers and will work with sales managers in the East to drive profits and improve relationships with customers.
“Monterey Mushrooms is fortunate to have dedicated leaders like Leslie to support the growth of our fresh sales team,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of sales and business development. “We look to her experience with our company and in the industry to help develop our teammates and fresh mushroom sales.”
