WP Rawl hires new Director of Food Safety & Quality

WP Rawl, the largest grower, shipper and processor of leafy greens in the US, announced Marshall Sherman as the new Director of Food Safety & Quality Assurance supporting all its growing and processing operations.

Sherman has an extensive background in produce distribution and farming operations, as well as plant and operations management. He previously worked for WP Rawl as General Manager from 2001 to 2008. His return as Director of Food Safety & Quality is a testament to the growth WP Rawl has seen over the past five years. In his new role Sherman will direct and implement all food safety and quality programs company-wide to include field operations, plant operations and external vendors.

“Bringing Marshall back as Director of Food Safety is a huge bonus for us,” said Ashley Rawl, vice president of sales, marketing and product development at WP Rawl. “He did an outstanding job for us as General Manager, and we have no less of an expectation for his new role. We are delighted that he was ready to come back to South Carolina and rejoin the team.”

Most recently, Sherman was the Director of Operations at a Jacksonville, Fla. produce distribution facility where he made progress in reducing transportation and labour costs. Previous to that he was the General Manager for an Oxnard, Calif. farming operation where he worked on everything from marketing and sales to farming and facility operations all while improving sales year over year.

“I am very excited to return to WP Rawl. Part of what drew me back to the company was the phenomenal growth they have experienced since I left in 2008,” stated Sherman. “Returning has felt like finding my family again. The Rawl family are great people to work for and this next opportunity is not only exciting professionally; it feels like coming home.”
