Oppenheimer Promotes East Coast Director of Sales

VANCOUVER, B.C. — Oppenheimer’s East Coast senior sales representative Brett Libke has been promoted to the role of East Coast director of sales.

“Brett has proven to be a very strategic thinker, is well regarded throughout the industry, and possesses invaluable leadership qualities,” said David Smith, Oppenheimer’s senior vice president, North American sales and categories. “His experience and knowledge of the business will complement the sales efforts made by many of Oppenheimer’s veteran sales people on the East Coast.”

Libke will be responsible for providing effective leadership and support for the eastern U.S. sales team which includes Oppenheimer’s Newark, Del., Tampa, Fla. and Chicago sales offices. He will focus on expanding distribution and supporting category directors in key areas while providing quality service to retail customers, growers and suppliers.

“We will be implementing a regional strategy that encourages Oppenheimer’s three eastern offices to operate in a more unified way.” said Libke. “By doing so we can optimize our service by aligning our sales people with the accounts they are best at serving regardless of location.”

Libke joined the Oppenheimer team as a sales representative in the company’s Newark, Del. office in 2011 following a decade and a half with C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn. Previous experience spans various sales and management roles within the produce, supply chain, and logistics industries.

“This new role will provide the unique opportunity to work more closely with our growers and develop a better understanding of their needs and how the industry operates from their perspective,” said Libke.
