Palamountain said, "I look forward to leveraging my capital markets and operational experience to continue building upon Limoneira's strong heritage in the citrus industry. Over the past number of years our team has put the elements in place to significantly grow our agribusiness operations in the coming years following a series of investments in new orchards and infrastructure."
