Growers Express promoted Merritt Bruce from director of national accounts to the company’s vice president of sales. Mr. Bruce has been an employee of Grower’s Express since 1990, working in a number of sales roles to help customers of all sizes identify opportunities for growth and ultimately aid them in reaching their own business goals.
Mr. Bruce’s innovative mindset has led to the steady expansion of customers, relationships and sales for the company's Green Giant Fresh product line over the last several years. His most recent accomplishment was spearheading the launch of a national sales and marketing campaign developed to expand the company’s commodity program with a new and very successful line of Green Giant Fresh stand-up pouches.
“Merritt’s strong integrity, competence and friendly smile have been integral in our company’s forward momentum during his time with us,” Jamie Strachan, chief executive officer of the Growers Cos., said in a press release. “I am certain that as vice president of sales, he will continue to drive the progress and innovation that our customers have come to depend on. Merritt has proven his commitment to offer our customers more value and better service, and I am excited to work alongside him in this new phase of his career.”
