C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., has promoted Gary York to director of sourcing, Europe, the company said Monday, citing increased demand in Europe for a global supply of fresh fruits and vegetables.
In the newly created position, York will be tasked with establishing the resources to further develop and expand sourcing in Europe for C.H. Robinson.
York has spent the last two years helping build C.H. Robinson’s sourcing and temperature-control needs from a global perspective. This new position will be a continuation of that work, with a focus on customer and supply development to support the growing business, the company said.
“Gary’s long-term track record of success and overall knowledge of the global produce supply chain will deliver value to our customers and suppliers, while at the same time, allow us to develop new business and expand our European Sourcing team,” said Jim Lemke, senior vice president at C.H. Robinson.
York started his career with C.H. Robinson in the company’s New York office in 1992. Previously, York was general manager of the sourcing and transportation business for FoodSource, a C.H. Robinson company; transportation manager for FoodSource; and transportation manager of the C.H. Robinson Northeast Sourcing team. - Eric Johnson
