Starting his career in juice processing nearly 40 years ago, Terry has enjoyed a career in an industry that provides opportunities to work closely with talented industry professionals and a grower community to turn the fruits of their labors into value added products utilized by companies worldwide. To be able to take high quality natural fruit and vegetable ingredients and meet with customers to collaborate in finding solutions for their specific needs is not only the cornerstone of FruitSmart, but personally very satisfying. For the past 15 years he has enjoyed leading FruitSmart through significant growth that was only accomplished through the hard work and dedication of a highly talented group of employees that have acted as “owners” of the company. Raised and educated in Washington State, he has been fortunate enough to build a career and raise a family in the heart of the Pacific Northwest’s prime agricultural growing area. With his wife, Anita, they’ve enjoyed raising their children in the Yakima Valley and now particularly enjoying spending time with their two grandchildren.
