As a member of the grower/processor’s board of directors, Mr. Reed assisted the investor group and the company in developing its strategic business plan, various operational matters, realignment of the compensation structure and the ultimate sale of the company to Grimmway Farms. The result of these efforts created the largest carrot producer in the United States.
