ROBERT GORDON

PRESIDENT & CEO, FRESHPOINT, MAITLAND

Gordon, president and CEO since 2013, has led an expansion that doubled space for the Sysco-owned company, which opened a 150,000-sq.-ft. facility just outside of Orlando in 2019. FreshPoint, one of the largest fresh fruit and vegetable distribution companies in the country, has more than 20 centers in North America. Gordon has been with FreshPoint for three decades. His career began as a produce specialist in 1988 at Red’s Market in Central Florida, which is now a subsidiary of FreshPoint. Gordon rose to vice president and general manager, becoming president and CEO in 2013.

Gordon is active in charitable causes and helps organize FreshPoint employees in the distribution of millions of pounds of food giveaways to the needy through multiple North American charities during the holiday season. He has served on the board of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and is also involved with the non-profit House of Hope, which provides shelter and assistance for teenagers in need.

Gordon is a strong advocate for his industry and a regular attendee of the United Public Policy conference with members of Congress in Washington, D.C.
