GREENFIELD, Mass. -- The Organic Trade Association's board of directors yesterday Said it has selected Caren Wilcox as ITS new executive director. Wilcox, who will begin working at OTA in March, succeeds Katherine DiMatteo, OTA's original executive director who has served in that role since 1990.
It is anticipated that DiMatteo will remain at OTA through June to work with Wilcox to ensure a smooth transition. During DiMatteo's tenure, OTA was instrumental in shaping national organic standards and has promoted organic agriculture and organically produced goods in North America.
Wilcox brings to OTA a wealth of experience in the world of agriculture. She is experienced at managing domestic and international programs, and has served in both the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government.
