Kaveh Bakhtiari has joined AgTech company AppHarvest in a newly created role as VP of investor relations, effective May 17.

In this new position, Bakhtiari will focus on developing AppHarvest’s strategic positioning and building relationships with the global investment community.

“Radical transparency is a core value at AppHarvest, and that’s why we’re so eager to upgrade our investor relations program with the addition of Kaveh,” said AppHarvest President David Lee. “His wealth of knowledge in social impact investing and his faith in the mission will help us keep current investors that we’re so grateful for updated and carry our message to more investors as we build out our network of 12 high-tech indoor farms by the end of 2025.”

Bakhtiari is an accomplished senior executive with extensive investor relations experience and a deep interest in civic agriculture. He joins AppHarvest from Hillenbrand Inc., a global diversified industrial company. Bakhtiari earned both his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and his MBA in finance and strategic management from the University of Chicago and is a CFA charterholder.

“I am committed to consistent and transparent communication with investors and analysts, and I am delighted to be joining AppHarvest at this exciting time in the company’s history,” said Bakhtiari. “I believe in the AppHarvest mission because the problem with our food system is real, the CEA solution is practical and it is a model that can be replicated broadly as the company and sector grow for the benefit of society at large.”

AppHarvest hosted its first quarter earnings call on May 17.

AppHarvest, based in Morehead, Kentucky, is an applied technology company building some of the world’s largest high-tech indoor farms in Appalachia.
