(Dec. 20) Vegetable and table grape grower-shipper Peter Rabbit Farms, Coachella, Calif., recently announced that its senior vice president of marketing and business development will be leaving the company.

In a news release Dec. 15, Peter Rabbit president and chief executive officer John Powell Jr. said Suzanne Powell would exit the business in favor of a job in the floral industry.

The latter Powell also is immediate past president of the local chapter of California Women for Agriculture, as well as current third vice president of that organization’s statewide board, John Powell noted.

“Flowers are a product I am passionate about,” Suzanne Powell said. “With the sale of our carrot processing business this past August I am now in a position to explore a change in career direction while remaining in agriculture.”
