A former marketer at Crunch Pak has joined Spiker Communications, Missoula, Mont., in a business development capacity.

Krista Jones, who was named director of brand marketing and product innovation at sliced apple company Crunch Pak, Cashmere, Wash., in 2014, previously was with Cutter & Buck and Nordstrom.

She was on the United Fresh Produce Association’s Marketing and Merchandizing Executive Committee.

“I’m looking forward to using all the experience I’ve gained for a new set of produce clients,” Jones said in a news release.

Spiker Communications president Wes Spiker said in the release that Jones’ marketing experience and produce insight is beneficial.

She is based in a home office in Wenatchee, Wash., where she will be closer to West Coast grower-shippers.
