Chris Scott, export trade specialist for the Washington Apple Commission for the past four years, left the commission on July 31 to take a position as general manager of NORPAC Industries, a frozen food processor in Quincy, Washington. The company has more than 300 employees.
Todd Fryhover, Apple Commission president, said the commission is in the process of determining its future staffing needs in view of Scott’s departure. Scott oversaw the commission’s promotions in several export markets, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Russia, and the Middle East. He also monitored compliance of overseas entities involved in implementing commission promotions, and worked on the industry section of the commission’s Web site.
