US (CA): Todd Plaxton joins Houweling's Group in sales management

Houweling’s Group hired Todd Plaxton to the company’s team. Todd brings a diverse background in sales management and account development having spent time with blue chip organizations outside the produce industry such as Nestle Foods and within the produce sector with Star Produce and The Oppenheimer Group.



In announcing the hiring, Houweling’s Group EVP Sales Mike Reed noted; “Todd brings the skillset, dedication and drive that is required in our industry. His experience within the greenhouse sector enables him to hit the ground running, while also bringing a solid business approach.”

When asked about joining the Houweling’s Group team Plaxton reflects; “I have always had tremendous respect for Houweling’s and their reputation in the industry as an innovator and quality grower. At the same time, the company has evolved with the changing retail landscape. Major retailers continue to adjust and address their supply chain, favoring a direct relationship with growers. Houweling’s has done a tremendous job at fostering these retail relationships and I look forward to building on the upward trend with my accounts.”

Plaxton will be based in Houweling’s Camarillo, CA office, servicing a premium retail customer group in Western USA and Canada. When referring to the impact he expects to make with his accounts and the company, Todd says; “Service is critical in this business. I advocate for my customers and ensure I am proactive to address issues well before they ever appear on my customer’s radar. While it sounds simple, this business isn’t. Constant care and attention is needed to deliver first-time-right customer service.”
