As a leader, entrepreneur, and relationship-builder in the industry, his knowledge and network extends to all types of positions, sectors and levels in the produce business and beyond.
Rex’s role at Joe Produce Search is to lead his team in connecting produce industry companies with talented candidates. As a true “people person,” Rex has been building relationships and meeting new people at every point in his career.
