Taylor & Fulton Packing LLC has hired a salesman with more than a decade of tomato buying and selling experience.
Steve McCue, who joined Palmetto, Fla.-based Taylor & Fulton Jan. 31, most recently worked for six months for Loxahatchee, Fla.-based J&J Produce Inc.
Before that, he worked for several years at Cincinnati-based Gentile Bros. Co., where his father, Steve McCue Sr., heads the tomato department.
âI know his dad real well, and I met Steve through him and was very impressed,â said Ed Angrisani, a Taylor & Fulton partner. âI just thought he was the right fit, and after three or four weeks working here, I really think heâs the right fit.â
McCue said he started packing tomatoes as a teenager growing up in Atlanta. Joining Taylor & Fulton, he said, was a âfantastic opportunity.â
âItâs a company with a great reputation, and I have a lot of respect for the ownership,â he said.
Angrisani said McCue would be his âright-hand manâ while he learns the ropes at Taylor & Fulton.
âI think the guyâs got a tremendous future,â Angrisani said.
