The Southeast Produce Council welcomes Brandon Parker as Chairman of the Board!

The roots of produce run deep for Brandon Parker, Director of Sales at Shuman Farms, Inc. Brandon has been with the Shuman family since February of 2009. Shuman Farms is an industry-leading grower, packer, and shipper of sweet onions. Before joining the Shuman Farms team, Brandon worked on the family farm with his grandfather, who was known and loved locally for his high quality produce. Brandon inherited his passion for produce and people at an early age from his grandfather while growing green peanuts, watermelon, and cantaloupe.  Brandon graduated from Pinewood Christian Academy in Bellville, Georgia, after which he attended Georgia Southern University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Finance. He continues to be an active member of his community through serving on various church and school boards. He currently resides in Reidsville, Georgia with his wife, Natalie, and their two daughters, Matti(13) and Mimi(11). Brandon’s leadership continues to evolve within the produce industry. He has served the Southeast Produce Council Board of Directors seven years, three of which has been on the executive committee. Brandon is very passionate about the SEPC, the value it provides to its members, and the culture of family it encourages throughout the industry. He looks forward to being a part of what the future holds for SEPC in this ever-changing world of produce.
