- Vice President- Raw Product
Chad was born and raised on a family farm where he grew up changing water pipes, swamping cherries and packing Gravenstein apples. “I look back loving the lifestyle and where I came from. Being back in this valley and industry has been a great fit for me and my family.”
After high school, Chad went to Oregon State where he earned his degree in business. He wanted to become better-rounded and explore another passion of his in financial markets. He spent 6 years in the investment world as a broker and licensed financial advisor before coming back to his roots as a field representative with Diamond.
In 2008 Chad became manager of the field department and since then expanded his role, becoming V.P. of Raw Product. He and his wife Andi enjoy living in Hood River with their two children. “I’m blessed more than I deserve. I have a great family and a career doing something I really enjoy.”
