Harmon will be the general manager of all CBF Mexico operations. His previous experience includes work with Pricewaterhouse Cooper in the supply chain consultant group. Harmon was previously director of operations and was involved in supply chain operations at Mission Produce in California and Latin America.

“We are expanding and improving our Mexican operations to better serve our customers,” said Brian Church, chief executive officer of the company.  “Jonathan’s leadership will help us attain our short and long term growth plans.”

Harmon holds a bachelor's degree in agricultural business from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo and an MBA with a finance concentration from the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He is a native of the Imperial Valley, CA, where his mother’s family has been involved in farming since 1908.

Harmon said he is looking to strengthen the Church Bros. Farms growing and packing processes through continuous improvements.

“Jonathan is unique in that he is a certified supply chain professional with more than 10 years of work in Mexico,” Church said. “That expertise is a great addition to our management team and our future growth plans.”
