TUALATIN, OR – September 27, 2017 - Union Wine Company owner Ryan Harms is proud to announce a new addition to the company's marketing team. Kyna Williams joins Union as the new Director of Marketing, bringing 12 years of brand management experience to the Oregon Winery.

“This was another big growth year for Union Wine Company, and Kyna’s extensive branding experience will be a critical asset for capitalizing on new marketing opportunities,” said Harms.

“Her brand management skill set and comprehensive strategy development make her a strong addition to the Union team, and we’re eager to have her with us as we continue to expand,” said Harms.

Throughout her 12-year career at Nike, Williams executed product launches, high touch events and digital enablement for several of Nike’s top categories. Some of her key accomplishments include: launching the Nike+ Running App, overseeing the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, at its time the largest women’s marathon and half marathon in the world; and crafting and implementing the brand strategies for growth categories like Nike Women, Nike Running and Nike Young Athletes, whose business grew 39% in just two years during her tenure. Outside of work, Williams loves spending time with her husband and two young daughters hiking, camping or at the beach.
