Soledad, Calif.-based Braga Fresh has promoted two staff members, Abelardo “Lalo” Pamatz and Ashleigh Lombardi.

Pamatz was named a production analyst after having served as a sales coordinator for a year, according to a news release. He will provide trend information and demand forecasts to assure farming operations meet increasing sales volumes of Braga’s more than 20 fresh commodities.

“Lalo’s direct experience with customers and orders over the past year positions him perfectly to move up into the analyst role and advise our harvesting operations how to plan as Braga Fresh continues to expand,” Peter Cling, vice president of sales, said in the release.

Lombardi, a recent graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness, was named to the sales staff. She had worked for seven months as an administrative assistant.
