Rich Dallimonti: Man on Fire

Every company says, “We are only as good as our people." 

It's a cliché, but it is true for KB.  Rich Dallimonti has been selling at KB Watsonville for 30 years, and still fights for sales as if he was the new kid trying to prove himself.  He is the top salesperson and has been for many, many years.  

Whether we are growing roses, lilies, gerberas, or other crop he is able to find homes for them.  If you have any connection with KB, you probably have met or talked to Rich. Talking is where Rich excels, I don’t know anyone whose energy grows the more they tell you about hockey, country music, walking the dog, cigar smoking, fixing the car or gerbera daisies.  


Another thing that is special about Rich is when there is a local news story; Rich for some reason is always at the scene.

Whether it is accidents, robberies, bodies flying out of party buses or flaming cars as the photo shows (his own, on the way down the KB driveway) Rich is nearby.  

I am not sure what this says about him or if it is safe to stand close to him. 

The best policy is to call Rich, buy flowers from him and DON’T ask, “How about those Sharks”, unless you have a little time to spare. 

For all the buyers out there, we still have pink snaps and tulips for Valentine's shipping.  Call Rich, ask about his car fire and he will give you a great deal on pink snaps or tulips.  Actually any of our sales staff can do the same, minus the story.
