Greg Golden of Mullica Hill, NJ will serve as Chair, and Joella Shiba of Los Angeles, CA as Vice-Chair. Serving as Secretary is Patrick Dueire of Wilmington, DE, and elected as Treasurer is Michael Warren of Pompano Beach, FL. The NMB officers, together with the rest of the board members, will continue to uphold the NMB’s mission to increase consumption of fresh mangos in the U.S. through innovative research and promotional activities, while fostering a thriving industry.

Each member brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion for making the mango industry the best it can be, and together will be putting all these qualities to the best use possible.”
