Venture, CALIF. — LINKFRESH, a provider of supply chain ERP solutions designed specifically for the fresh produce industry, has announced the appointment of Lisa Padilla as director of business development, according to a press release.
Padilla joins the LINKFRESH team from cloud and hosting specialist Zumasys, where she was relationship manager, working closely with the fresh produce sector. She has a thorough knowledge of the fresh produce sector and an inherent understanding of technology and software, according to the release. At Zumasys, she spearheaded their success in driving infrastructure sales with fresh produce industry clients, which included the Famous software user base. This experience will act as an excellent springboard to her new career at LINKFRESH, according to the release.
Speaking about her new role, Padilla said, “Today’s produce companies need their software to grow and evolve with their business; software that is designed specifically for the challenges of their industry and that takes advantage of the latest technologies. They need software that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, on any device; software built by a company focused on empowering businesses to grow. I believe LINKFRESH is that software. I believe it so much I asked to join their team. Now it will be my mission to share with the industry my reasons for such belief in LINKFRESH software. I am honored to be part of the fresh produce community and I look forward to continuing to help it grow for many years to come.”
Welcoming Padilla to the team, Andy Makeham, LINKFRESH CEO, said, “We are extremely excited to have Lisa join our team in the USA. Lisa brings a wealth of fresh produce industry knowledge and experience which will prove invaluable as we continue to expand and invest in the United States.”
