Chrysal Americas welcomes Scott Blumenthal as General Manager

Chrysal appointed Scott Blumenthal as General Manager at Chrysal Americas. With 35 years of expertise in the cut floral industry, Scott joins Chrysal Americas to lead their team and contribute to the company's continued success, starting from July 18th, 2023.

Throughout his distinguished career, Scott has held key positions that have honed his skills and deepened his industry knowledge. He co-founded Equiflor Corporation, served as Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at HOSA International for 13 years, and held the role of Vice President of Dole Fresh Flowers. Scott's most recent accomplishment was his invaluable contribution to FTD, where he played a pivotal role in developing their Farm Direct Program and served as Vice President of Strategic Sourcing.

"Scott's broad business sense in Sales & Marketing and Supply Chain, coupled with his extensive experience in Executive Management, make him the ideal fit for his new role as General Manager at Chrysal Americas. His track record of driving business growth, implementing effective strategies, and maximizing profits has earned him recognition and respect in the industry," commented Juliana Gutierrez, Senior Marketing Manager at Chrysal Americas.

In his previous position as VP of Strategic Sourcing at FTD Companies, Scott was an integral part of the executive management team for the $1.2 billion global floral and gifting company. He managed all aspects of floral procurement, including sourcing, importing, and distributing of flowers across multiple categories from South American and domestic farms. Scott worked closely with various internal business units to develop and implement Floral Programs tailored to different divisions and achieve sales, gross margin, quality, inventory, and turnover goals. His initiatives, such as the successful launch of the first direct import fresh flower program (FTD Farm Direct), have significantly reduced costs, improved product quality, and accelerated sales for FTD's wholesale business.

"I am thrilled to join Chrysal Americas as General Manager for North America and contribute to the company's ongoing success," said Scott Blumenthal. "I am passionate about the floral industry and excited to work with the talented team at Chrysal Americas to drive innovation, deliver exceptional products and services, and provide unmatched value to our customers."
