Monterey Mushrooms has revealed the recent expansion of its executive team. As the company continues to grow, it has appointed Mike Stephan to senior director of business development, a role that spans the entire U.S. sales team from California to Florida.
Stephan previously held the role of western region sales director and prior to that, he was the eastern region sales director. “Mike’s knowledge of our current customer base across the nation and his drive to get to know prospective customers are sure to help him succeed in his new role,” said Mike O’Brien, vice-president of sales & business development.
This well-deserved promotion comes as Stephan approaches his 18th year working at Monterey Mushrooms.
Stephan is a past board member of the Mushroom Council, a graduate of Winona State University and a retired captain in the U.S. Army Reserves, where he served his country during Operations Iraqi Freedom and Desert Storm. Stephan resides in Minneapolis with his wife Amy and daughter Anne, who is a sophomore at Florida Gulf Coast University. Stephan is a private pilot and he and his family enjoy adventuring, sailing and flying.
Monterey Mushrooms is currently searching for a replacement for the role of western region sales director.
