Wes Holcomb

Markon Member, Director of Produce and Dairy
“Working in our home garden with my three daughters is not only something that bonds my family, it also lets me show them a slice of what I do when I’m at work in the produce industry. At my job I work closely with Markon, the grower-shipper community, and all of the Ben E. Keith divisions choosing the finest products for our customers. I love seeing everything it takes to bring healthy fruits and vegetables to tables across America—I feel very fortunate to be able to do so.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
