Are you passionate about telling the stories of the people, organizations and movements that are changing the world? Organic Valley was founded by seven farmers in rural Wisconsin with the audacious idea that we could make food in a way that’s healthier for the people that eat it and the farmers that produce it. Thirty years later we’ve grown to 2,000 farms across the US and over $1 billion in revenue annually. But we’re still independent, and our mission and roots in rural Southwestern Wisconsin remain unchanged. Good storytelling has been essential to our mission and remains critical to our success today. We’re looking for someone who has built expertise and a strong career in communications and media relations to join our team and bring our public relations work to the next level.
The Public Relations Director will lead the development of public relations strategies for CROPP Cooperative and its brands in support of our organization’s mission and business goals. This role manages the internal public relations team and external agencies/contractors, overseeing day-to-day media relations activities. The PR Director is uniquely positioned to bring the story of the Organic Valley brand and our cooperative’s mission to life in national media and thought leadership channels. This person will be expected and empowered to continue our tradition of being bold and innovative in how we tell the stories of Organic Valley, our farmers and the good food movement.
