Bill Brewer, who has served for 13 years as the president and CEO of the Oregon Potato Commission, has announced his retirement. His last day in his role with the OPC will be June 30, 2019.

“OPC has allowed me to be involved with the potato industry and growers from around the U.S.,” says Brewer. “I have enjoyed it all and hope I have represented Oregon potato growers well. My time with OPC has allowed me to work with Oregon State University, the Department of Agriculture, and legislators and agencies in both Oregon and Washington, D.C.

“I wish to thank all the potato growers of Oregon for this experience,” Brewer continues, “but none more than Tony Amstad, who first asked me to apply for the job and helped introduce me to the program.”

The OPC is accepting applications for a new executive director until 4 p.m., Nov. 16, 2018. Applications can be accessed at
