SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. - Sunkist Growers here has named Mark Tompkins director of domestic sales, a new position that is part of a realignment of responsibilities as sales exec John McGuigan leaves his position as v.p./fresh fruit sales at the end of this year.
Tompkins, a produce industry veteran who rejoined Sunkist just over a year ago, will manage Sunkist's domestic sales office network as well as the cooperative's sales operations. In his previous time with Sunkist, he served as both director of sales operations and director of domestic sales.
Sunkist also named David Pott director of export sales. Pott will manage the activities of Sunkist's export sales staff in California as well as Sunkist personnel in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Before joining Sunkist as director of Southeast Asia sales in 2005, Pott spent many years on the production side of the citrus business at both the packinghouse and exchange levels.
