Vero Beach, FL USA – As Greenyard and Seald Sweet continue to grow and develop sales programs, a new team member joins Seald Sweet in Vero Beach, Florida. Industry veteran GT Parris joined Seald Sweet’s sales team as account executive and commodity manager in November 2017, with focus on growth of the company’s domestic and imported produce programs.

Parris brings over 25 years of experience in the produce industry to Seald Sweet. During his career, Parris has been well-known in the Florida citrus sector with successful development of key retail programs. His experience and knowledge of various commodities will be instrumental with the recent expansion of Seald Sweet’s programs in Mexico and with Greenyard Logistics’ (Seald Sweet’s sister company) new cold storage and packing facility in the northeast US.

“I have watched Seald Sweet change its identity over the last 15 years and come out stronger and more relevant to their customer base,” says Parris. “Our industry is constantly changing and Seald Sweet has shown the willingness to take these challenges head-on, without hesitation. I appreciate the values and the vision Seald Sweet has for long-term growth.”

“We are excited about the energy and knowledge GT brings to our team,” says Mayda Sotomayor-Kirk, Managing Director of Seald Sweet. “His experience is a perfect fit for our company and a value to our customers and program development. We look forward to the growth he brings to our company.”
