Meet Your United Fresh Staff: Hector Ranero
Although from and currently residing in Arlington, Virginia, Hector’s background is Central American; his father is from Guatemala and his mother is from Honduras. Hector joined United Fre
sh in exhibitor and convention services when the United Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Association and the International Fresh-Cut Produce Association merged in 2006. Since then, he has had a close working relationship with exhibitors and vendors, ensuring they have any and all the information needed for a successful convention. Learning about exhibitors and connecting their work with a face or a voice is what Hector enjoys most day-to-day.
However, if you are looking for him after business hours, you may want to try the movie theatre; Hector is “big into movies.” He also enjoys travel and tries to visit his parents once a year in Guatemala; their house is located at the base of two volcanoes in Palin, Escuintla. Next summer, though, he will "take an adventure" to Greece to celebrate his 30th birthday.
Hector has quite an extension of favorites when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Snow peas and oranges are at the top of his list. But, he also likes eating corn, broccoli, cauliflower and an assortment of berries. And, this weekend, Hector is planning to try artichokes for the first time. Any suggestions on how to best prepare them are welcome.
