As General Manager Josh Leichter explains: “As 2018 got underway, we saw an opportunity to improve our logistics. At the same time, we also wanted to put renewed focus on our branding across all channels. We are happy to welcome Brad Lukesh and Thorsten Rhode to our team – they will strengthen us in their respective fields going forward.”

Brad Lukesh, Director Logistics, is tasked with more efficiently and effectively managing all transportation needs, including deliveries to customers, transfers of product and delivery of materials. Brad has deep experience in produce logistics including positions with Think Fresh, Oppenheimer and, most recently, Sun Pacific. In the words of Josh Leichter: “Freight is an area we feel we can add value to, throughout the supply chain. We are confident Brad can help us improve in that area.”

Thorsten ‘Thor’ Rhode, Senior Director Marketing, most recently was the marketing lead at Super King Markets, a Los Angeles grocery store chain known for its extensive produce and meat selection.
