Hazel Technologies Announces Stacey Lessel as New AgTech Account Executive
CHICAGO, IL - The more you know, the better you will be able to navigate the produce industry (that’s kind of ANUK’s motto, if you hadn’t noticed). Experience is everything in this industry, and Hazel Technologies’ most recent appointee has plenty of it. The solutions provider has named industry veteran Stacey Lessel as its new AgTech Account Executive.
“I am incredibly excited and honored to join the team at Hazel Technologies. Their industry proven and academically validated post-harvest solutions are driving sales for grower-packer-shippers and retailers alike, all while making a positive impact in reducing global food waste,” said Lessel.
In her new role, Lessel will focus on managing Hazel Tech’s rapidly expanding customer base and commercial operations in the Midwest and other key territories, as noted in a press release.
She joins Hazel Tech following 18 years of produce industry experience specializing in global packaging sales. Most recently, Lessel serviced the grower-packer-shipper community in her role as Regional Sales Manager at Plastpac, and as Sales Manager at Calpine Containers prior to that.
"We are focused on introducing high caliber talent with diverse industry experience to our growing organization,” said Pat Flynn, CMO. “Stacey’s sales experience in building relationships with customers, implementing packaging programs, and launching new products will help further integrate Hazel’s innovative technology into the fresh produce category.”
