The Green Coffee Company (GCC) has appointed former Intelligentsia Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ted Skodol as its new Chief Revenue Officer.
The Medellin-based coffee farm group, Colombia’s largest coffee producer, said the appointment represents a ‘critical next step’ in its strategy to tap into the vast US roasted coffee market and its pursuit of ‘higher profits further down the coffee supply chain’.
“Ted’s entrepreneurial spirit present throughout his career will serve him well in his new role in building out GCC’s expansion into the US and beyond. His strategic connections and deep knowledge of US coffee sales will be invaluable in building large-scale, profitable sales channels,” said Robby Kuster, Vice President of GCC’s parent company Legacy Group.
Founded in 2017, GCC manages over 13.2 million coffee trees across more than 3,000 hectares and 39 farms.
In June 2023, the coffee farm group completed a $25m Series C funding round which it said would fund a US roasting facility to improve its value chain.
