Meet Tarek!

Tarek has been part of the PCF family for the past 10 years! He started on the swing crew as a Split Case Picker and has worked his way up to now being the Outbound Team Bridge Manager. Tarek's determination and hard work speaks to his career growth at PCF. 

Throughout my time at PCF, I've received wonderful mentorship from people who not only cared about the company but also about me. Now in my new role, I try to give back to my team to help build their skills as they grow their careers at PCF."

- Tarek Frias, Outbound Team Bridge Manager

Meet Keenan!

Keenan started with PCF in high school and worked part-time while going to college. After graduating, and while getting his MBA, Keenan worked as a Buyer and transferred to the Finance department as Senior Financial Analyst and was then promoted to Manager.

Working on the supply-side (farms and procurement) and the retail side (farm store) has given me exposure to many aspects of the produce supply chain. This exposure has helped give me context around the financial transactions and analysis that I do in my current role." 

- Keenan Hatfield, Sr. Financial Analyst

Meet Shawntae!

Friendly, hard-working, and fun! 3 words to describe buyer, Shawntae Lowe. Shawntae has been with PCF since 2017 when she started off in the Kent warehouse's Repack department. She later moved into Inventory Control and then moved to the Procurement department where she was promoted into her current position as a Buyer.

Working in the warehouse has left me with a great appreciation for all the departments in operations. I’ve been in all their shoes. I understand the pressures that they are under, and try my best to be collaborative when issues arise. The prior positions I've held required independent action. This prepared me immensely for the fast-paced world of buying."

- Shawntae Lowe, Buyer

Meet Andy!

Andy joined PCF in 2015, working in Operations first as an Order Selector, then as a Supervisor. His understanding of our systems and the produce business allowed him to transfer to procurement as an Assistant Buyer. Andy excelled in this new role and was later promoted to Produce Buyer.

The best part about working at PCF is the people. I've had some great coworkers, great supervisors, and made quite a few friends here through the years."
