(Sept. 19, 11:30 a.m.) The Wenatchee-based Washington Apple Commission, which has been operating without a full-time president for the past month, has made several personnel changes — but none of them involving the top spot.

Interim commission president Ken Severn announced Sept. 18 that three current staffers had been given new roles, according to a commission news release.

Rebecca Baerveldt, who had been the commission’s export marketing manager, was promoted to manager of strategic planning, government relations and grant writing.

Todd Fryhover, a project manager with the commission, was promoted to export operations director.

And Robin Mooney, the commission’s vice president and treasurer, will add operations director to her list of titles.

The commission is still, however, without a full-time president. On July 24, the commission’s board of directors voted to place then-president Dave Carlson on administrative leave.

Leading the search for a new president are board members Dalton Thomas, owner of Wenatchee-based Oneonta Trading Corp.; and Mark Zirkle, president of Rainier Fruit Co., Selah, Wash.
