GLENDALE, WI: Maglio Companies has hired Joe D’Ottavio, a 35-year industry veteran to lead its operations team at the Wisconsin-based produce company. Affectionately known as “Joe D,” he will be responsible for all Maglio Companies facilities located in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Boston and McAllen, TX.

“We are very pleased to have Joe D join our team as Vice President of Operations. With his vast knowledge and expertise in produce production, we expect great things” said Sam Maglio, President of Maglio Companies. “Joe has a track record of successfully growing top line revenue, managing complex fresh produce businesses and the ability to provide produce solutions that exceed customer expectations.”

For the last 13 years, D’Ottavio has led distribution centers for a national food manufacturer, which included tomato-potato-onion repack and fresh-cut facilities. D’Ottavio developed whole fruit, fresh-cut, banana and pineapple programs on a regional and national level for retail, foodservice and convenience store channels. Additionally, he oversaw the acquisition and startup of a 10,000-acre farming project.

“I’m energized by the positive can-do attitude that originates from Sam and the Maglio Companies team across the country,” said D’Ottavio. “It’s exciting to be with a multi-faceted company that partners, listens and understands the needs of its customers as they identify and invest in real produce solutions.”

D’Ottavio is a former pastry chef instructor and graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.  He attended the Rollins College/Crummer School of Business located in Winter Park, Florida.
