Date: 05/14/12

The Lodi Winegrape Commission announced that Camron King, has been named the Commission’s new executive director. King was vice president of state government relations at the California Association of Winegrape Growers for eight years.

"I am excited to be joining the Lodi Winegrape Commission and to be working with a group of such talented and respected growers,” said King. He added, “The Commission has a well-deserved and established reputation within the industry for being at the forefront of sustainability, research, marketing and promotion and I look forward to building on the tradition of success here.”

King has worked in association management since graduating from California State University, Sacramento, where he completed his graduate studies in Public Policy and Administration. In addition to his work at the California Association of Winegrape Growers, King has worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Western Labor Coalition. He has served on a number of wine industry boards and committees including the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium, the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance, the National Grape and Wine Initiative and the California Roundtable on Agriculture and the Environment.

“Camron has the right experience, expertise and enthusiasm to lead this organization at this important time to meet the challenges that lie ahead. He not only has worked with many Lodi growers on key issues for a number of years but he lives here and is familiar with the growth of the area’s reputation,” said Bob Lauchland, chairman of the Lodi Winegrape Commission’s Board of Directors. He added, “Camron is joining a talented team which did a tremendous job during these past months successfully implementing the Commission’s activities.”

King replaces Mark Chandler who resigned late last year. Chandler had been the executive director since the Commission was established in 1991.
