Specialty Sales Manager
Rob Greenwood is the Specialty Sales Manager for RPE. He oversees the procurement and sales of organic potatoes, Wisconsin fingerling potatoes and the Wisconsin sweet potato program. In this, role Rob manages inventory, communicates with numerous growers and packing sheds, and keeps communication lines open through all participants in order to sell RPE’s specialty products as efficiently as possible.
Rob also holds the role of Account Manager for some of RPE’s customers. He oversees these accounts by managing all sales orders and trouble shoots any issues that may arise. Rob works with the New Business Development Team in their effort to develop and expand individual accounts. “This position is both fun and challenging,” Rob said. “Communication with our customers is key to meet each of their specific needs.”
When you water your garden at home, you simply turn the water on. With fields that are as geographically spread out as our farm, it is not quite that simple. It is imperative that we apply the optimum amount of water at the right times to maximize the crops growth opportunity. How do we accomplish that?
In coordination with one of our larger vendors, we use a product called FieldNET that allows us to control all of our subscribed pivots online. These pivots are controllable from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or cell phone. We can send instructions to the pivots and even have the pivots let us know when there is a problem with their operation.
