New positions at Monrovia

Monrovia Nursery announced recently several promotions and changes, following the creation of sales and customer training positions for its Southwestern Region, Customer Solutions and Point of Sales System teams.

     New sales territories were created in Monrovia’s Southwest region, with Jim Rupe, Patrick Poitras, Morgan Bowling and Dorothy Blasing in place as sales representatives for these new areas, effective the first week of August.

     The Customer Solutions Team witnessed the hiring of Jerry Gross as training manager earlier this year for Monrovia’s Consulting Services, a customer training program developed to help retailers enhance their sales and operations.

     Joining the Point of Sales Systems team as retail systems manager for the Monrovia’s proprietary point-of-sales system is Stephen Stragnell, a long-time employee who first joined the nursery in 1988 as a sales trainee.
