The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) has appointed three new commissioners who will each serve a three-year term. Peggy Grover of BenchMark Potato in Rexburg; Ritchey Toevs, a grower residing in Aberdeen; and Tommy Brown of Lamb Weston in Pocatello were formally sworn in at the IPC’s October commission meeting in Sun Valley. The commissioners were nominated by industry peers and selected by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter.

“We are thrilled to welcome our newest commissioners, who have proven themselves to be dedicated leaders in the industry,” said Frank Muir, president and CEO of IPC. “We look forward to working with them on the many exciting marketing programs launching in 2014, and tapping into their critical expertise in identifying new opportunities and markets for America’s favorite vegetable.”

All three commissioners have held various positions with several other industry organizations. Grover most recently served at chairwoman of the Idaho Grower Shippers Association, Toevs was VP of trade affairs for the National Potato Council and co-chair of the International Marketing Committee of the U.S. Potato Board. Brown currently is chairman of the Raw Products Committee for the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry and serves on the Ag Affairs Committee for the IPC.

The six other commissioners currently representing the Idaho potato growers, shippers and processors are: Michael Christensen, Christensen Farms; Boyd Foster, Vista Valley Ag Inc. & Foster Co.; Jeff Harper, Flying H Farms; Dan Moss, Moss Farms; Dan Nakamura, Idahoan Foods; and Lynn Wilcox, Wlicox, Floyd & Sons.

Moss will serve as chairman and Foster will serve as vice chairman of the IPC during this fiscal year.
