Grower-owned cooperative Oregon Cherry Growers has announced the promotion of Danny Weeden, ten-year company veteran, to the role of executive vice president, general manager, and chief financial officer.

Weeden, who was the cooperative’s vice president and CFO, will manage operations in addition to finance, information technology, and supply chain functions for the cooperative Oregon Cherry Growers, which supplies fresh, processed, dried, and frozen sweet cherries and has processing facilities in Salem and The Dalles.

Weeden has more than 30 years’ experience in the food industry and has held senior positions with juice and fruit processors Olympic Foods and Seneca Foods, and foodservice snack foods supplier Chef Reddy Foods.
