Stacy Kniveton has taken the helm at the Washington State Potato Commission (WSPC) as commission chair for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. Kniveton has served in various roles on the commission, including chair of the Marketing and Industry Affairs committee and a member of the Research and Executive committees.
Kniveton says he’s excited to serve as chair and humbled by the trust placed in him by his fellow commissioners. His priorities match those of previous chair Rex Calloway. Both support funding high quality potato research, expanding marketing for Washington potatoes, sharing the agriculture story with the public, and providing a voice for growers in Olympia and Washington D.C.
