Sunkist Boosts
International Sales Team


October 19, 2005

October 19, 2005, Sherman Oaks, Calif…In recognition of the importance of its increased overseas citrus sales, Sunkist Growers has hired Dave Pott as Director of Southeast Asia Sales, announced Russ Hanlin, vice president of international sales and sales operations.

Pott, who has 23 years of sales experience within the Sunkist system, will be based in Sunkist's Visalia, California office.

According to Hanlin, “Pott will spend time in Hong Kong, mainland China, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, nurturing and building our already strong business in those markets, while developing new and emerging markets like Indonesia and the Philippines.”

“We are fortunate to have a talented, experienced professional like Dave devoting full attention to this complex piece of our export business,” Hanlin added.

Pott’s most recent Sunkist assignment was Manager of the Mid-California Citrus Exchange, a post he has held for the past 11 years. His key thrust there was developing increased export sales for the Sunkist-affiliated packinghouses in that exchange.
