Randi Harnden will join the Washington Apple Commission as export coordinator starting October 7.
Her appointment is part of a staff realignment following the departure two months ago of Chris Scott, the commission’s export trade specialist. Danelle Trovato, export assistant, was promoted to his position, and Harnden takes Trovato’s place.
Commission President Todd Fryhover said Harnden was appointed from 30 applicants. She is an apple and cherry grower in Cashmere, Washington, and has worked for the Eastmont School District in East Wenatchee for the past six years. She has experience with Web site oversight, food safety, state regulations, and marketing.
