Vanguard promotes Jon Fox, hires Ricardo Luchsinger

Vanguard International USA has promoted Jon Fox to manager of its USA Sales Team. The company also announced expanded its commercial business team with the hiring of Ricardo Luchsinger in the role of South America sales and procurement associate

Fox has been an integral part of Vanguard for the last 10 years in his role in sales and procurement. He will continue to directly manage his longstanding relationships with customers and suppliers. “Jon has earned the respect of customers, suppliers, and his internal teammates through his day-in and day-out interactions,” said Tim Clarke, president of Vanguard International USA.

“For me, this promotion represents an exciting launching pad to lead the Vanguard USA Sales team to another level,” said Fox, who alongside his wife, Kristen, and family will continue to reside in Wenatchee, WA.

Luchsinger will work out of the Vanguard offices in Santiago, Chile, supporting the global business team. He brings his deep roots and career experience in the produce business to this position. He previously worked in the Ultramar shipping office in Chile for four years and followed that with a tenure in Pacific Chile as a freight forwarder specializing in fresh fruit service. From 2016 to present he has held the role of export account manager for Georgie’s Fruit, a cherry, grape and kiwifruit grower located in central Chile.

“We’ve known Ricardo for many years as we have exported Georgie’s Fruit from him in the past, and we are confident that he will be a great addition to our team to help us to continue our business growth globally,” said Juan Luis Obach, manager of procurement and sales, Chile.

“As we grow our team, we grow our ability to provide timely delivery of market-specific produce, and strengthen our commitment to continue being global leaders,” said Clarke.
