Drew Schwartzhoff has been hired as director of marketing for C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn.
Schwartzhoff, who previously was director of marketing at St. Paul, Minn.-based dairy food manufacturer Kemps LLC, joined the company in September to fill the position of Bud Floyd, the companyâs vice president of produce marketing.
Floyd, who has been at C.H. Robinson for more than 12 years, plans to retire at the end of January, he said.
Floyd commended the sales and marketing background of Schwartzhoff, who has also worked for seven years at Hormel Foods Corp.
âHe is very familiar with the perishable world and he is at a point in his career where he is ready to take on more responsibility in a much broader scope,â Floyd said.
Between learning the produce business, the supply chain business and the transportation business, Floyd said there will be a lot for Schwartzhoff to learn.
