Frank Garcia joins the RDO Water team in Salinas as an Account Manager. In his new role, Frank is responsible for working with customers to fulfill equipment, parts, service, and rental needs. He is also leading one of the company’s newest offerings, a specialized drip tape retrieval and recycling service, which will involve field demonstrations with customers and partnering with the company’s installation team.
For nearly 20 years, Frank has worked in the Salinas agriculture industry, with roles in production, pest control and fertilizer sales, and, most recently, as Growing Operations Manager with Chiquita Fresh Express. In his new role with RDO Water, Frank is eager to be back working closely with customers and says service is his top priority.
“I enjoy helping customers and providing them the best service possible so that’s going to be my main focus as an account manager,” he said. With the Salinas store offering irrigation solutions from RDO Water and agriculture equipment from RDO Equipment Co., Frank will have opportunities to work with RDO Equipment Co. customers as well. A King City native, Frank also looks forward to putting his knowledge of the area and his experience in the industry to further enhance customer service.
Dan Rodriguez, Regional Sales Manager for RDO Water, agrees that Frank’s experience, both in the Central Coast region and the industry, is an asset.
“Frank has worked in this industry and the area for nearly two decades, and he has wonderful relationships with several existing customers,” he said. “This, combined with his understanding of our unique business, will be key in providing customer satisfaction, especially as we continue to increase our drip tape retrieval and recycling service.”
