Mark Finnessy has joined management at Plover, Wis.-based Okray Family Farms, said Dick Okray, co-owner.
Finnessy, the son of Okray Family Farms sales manager Mike Finnessy, starting working at the company two years ago, Okray said.
Future managers at the company first work in the fields, followed by stints in the plant and warehouse, before joining the sales desk, Okray said.
One of Mark Finnessy’s duties will be to help coordinate Okray Family Farms’ third-party food safety audits, Okray said.
Also new at the company, Okray Family Farms has installed two new scrubbing washers, Okray said.
So far, the reviews have been good.
“People tell us the potatoes look cleaner and brighter,” Okray said.
