Wenatchee, WA-based Stemilt Growers recently added Jocelyn Gerard to its marketing team.
In her new position as regional merchandising manager, Gerard will be based out of the company’s Chicago office and will work directly with partner customers to develop marketing programs for Stemilt’s range of fresh fruit products.
A native of Chicago, Gerard has a passion for food and spent the last several years working to support her community through the development of a local food movement, including a farmer’s market and food co-op. She previously spent 10 years working in management at an artisanal interior design company, Maya Romanoff Corp. Prior to that, she worked in administration at Reuters, a global information company.
“Her passion for fresh food and great communication and organizational skills will serve her well in this new role,” said Roger Pepperl, marketing director for Stemilt. “We’re thrilled to welcome Jocelyn to our team.”
