Kyle grew up north of Sacramento in Willows, California. In 2002 He started his career in the produce industry after graduating from UC Davis. Living and working in Sacramento and Lake County areas, he developed a sincere admiration for the people of the produce industry.
“I have been lucky enough to work with so many different types of people, from domestic retail buyers to importers all over Latin America.” Kyle says. “There are so many unique and talented people in produce, and that’s what makes the industry special.”
In January 2016, Kyle and his family moved to Lodi, California to join the Rivermaid Trading Company team. He will be instrumental in finding the right homes for our growers’ fruit.
“I believe I am a good planner and a strong problem solver.” He says. “I enjoy ‘finding the best fit’ whether that means matching the right mix of product and service for a particular customer or finding the right distribution channel for a particular part of the crop.”
In his spare time Kyle enjoys spending time with the wife and two children, traveling, playing golf, or going on Alaskan ocean fishing trips with his Dad.
