RIDGE SPRING, S.C. - May 10, 2016 - Leading into the start of South Carolina's peach season, Titan Farms - the premier grower, packer and processor of peaches in the Eastern United States - announces the expansion of its sales force by welcoming Sandra White and Michael Lacey to their in-house sales team. The new team members took on their new roles in April and May, respectively.

White brings 11 years of experience in the produce industry to her new position at Titan Farms. She began her career at Del Monte Fresh and continued on to Brooks Tropicals as a sales representative. Most recently, she was the senior sales account manager at Curry & Company in Brooks, Ore. While there, she managed the berry and carrot programs and helped increase their sales by more than 50 percent.

Lacey brings 16 years of experience in the produce industry to his new post, and twice as much in food and beverage. He began his produce career as vice president of sales and marketing at Pinecrest Farms, followed with positions at Coosemans Worldwide and Tomato Thyme. His most recent position was as the national director of business development at Market Fresh Produce, where he was responsible for developing and implementing a program to grow the brand at retail while also overseeing customer relationships.

"Sandra and Michael each bring broad experience to our team, having worked with both wholesale and retail accounts as well as having worked alongside growers," said Daryl Johnston, vice president of sales and marketing at Titan Farms. "They are already great fits to our team and we know they will help us take our business to the next level."

In their new positions at Titan Farms, White and Lacey are responsible for key retail accounts, managing new and existing relationships and advancing ongoing strategies to further develop the peach, broccoli and bell pepper categories. They will work with the sales team to increase sales of Titan Farms' entire product line.

White earned her food and resource economics degree from the University of Florida and specialized in agricultural business.
