IMG Citrus, a family-owned, citrus grower, packer, importer/shipper has been a longtime fixture in Florida’s Indian River citrus-producing community, with impact well beyond. The Vero Beach-based company has announced the upcoming retirement of its Vice President, Veronique Sallin, after 40 years with the company. According to IMG officials, Sallin’s retirement will officially begin at the end of the 2019-2020 Florida citrus season.
During her tenure with IMG Citrus, Sallin built and maintained strong relationships with customers around the world. She helped establish the IMG Citrus brand and reputation. Sallin will remain involved through this Florida season as a direct consultant to Sydney Allison, who was recently promoted to Director of Sales.
Allison has been with the company since 2016. She began as Export-Import Program Coordinator and then progressed to Sales Manager where she reported directly to Sallin.
As the Director of Sales, Allison will construct and implement the sales strategy, reporting to IMG Citrus President Michel Sallin.
Allison’s passion for produce started early at her family’s citrus and blueberry farm. Beyond her family’s history in farming, Allison studied agricultural business at the University of Florida, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Food and Resource Economics and a minor in Horticulture Science.
“She’s a great addition to the citrus industry,” says Scott Deyoe, IMG’s National Accounts Manager. “She’s always willing to go the extra mile to help a customer or coworker. Her goal is to get the best outcome for our customers.”
