NOGALES, AZ - With the new year off to a bang, organizations across the industry are making moves as they strengthen for the year ahead. The Fresh Produce Association of the Americas (FPAA) has announced that it will be adding a new force to its team with the addition of Andrea Ortega as its new Communications Coordinator. With a strong background in marketing, communications, and project management, Ortega will serve as a valuable asset to FPAA’s lineup as the association seeks to achieve its 2021 goals.
In her new role, Ortega will assist FPAA in creating more efficient communication throughout the organization, assist in coordinating events, develop new marketing strategies, and manage virtual engagement, according to a release from FPAA.
“We are excited to have an enthusiastic believer in economic development on board,” said President Lance Jungmeyer. “As an organization driven to help companies succeed in their businesses, we have a story to tell, with $100 million in infrastructure improvements coming to Nogales, and a cold inspection room that will expand the breadth of items handled in Nogales, of course which means jobs.”
