A fresh approach: Cultivating trust at the Produce Marketing Association

As CFO of the Produce Marketing Association (PMA), a trade organization representing companies from every segment of the global fresh produce and floral supply chain, I believe it’s important to invest in people.

After a major internal changeover, including a new CEO, we realized that we needed to take a good, honest look at our culture.

We identified several main competencies to focus on – things like coaching and mentoring, communication, and conflict resolution – but the competency that rose to the top was trust. We realized that if you don’t have trust, you have nothing.

We talked to several vendors about helping us develop a program that would build trust while energizing people at all levels.

Advantage Performance brought us the most holistic and engaging solution, and they were flexible and willing to customize their programs to meet our specific needs.
