Early Career

Llopis graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles with a degree in political science. After UCLA, he fast-tracked at the Gallo Wine Company as a sales representative and then at Sunkist Juice Beverages, where he became the youngest executive in the company’s 100-year history.

Leading the successful turnaround of Sunkist’s juice beverage division opened the door for his next endeavor – at only 30 years old – as a senior executive at American Seafoods Company, leading the foodservice and retail business operational units. The result was an increase in market share, new brand introductions, and a full-scale transformation of the company.
