New York Apple Association Names Cailin Kowalewski Account Manager
FISHERS, NY - Cailin Kowalewski is rising rapidly through the New York Apple Association’s (NYAA) ranks! This week, the association announced that Kowalewski would be taking on a new role—that of Account Manager—after only being with the company for one year.
Kowalewski first joined NYAA last year as Assistant Account Manager. Prior to joining NYAA’s team, Kowalewski was with Cornell Cooperative Extension—Wayne County, where she served as the Nutrition and Consumer Science Team Coordinator developing and identifying programs to address nutrition and community health needs, according to a press release. In that role, she also planned and managed local, state, and grant-funded programs, as well as provided oversight of grant objectives for the regional Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Outreach Team. She graduated from Tufts University, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in 2015, with a master’s degree in food policy and applied nutrition.
“Cailin is a wonderful addition to our organization,” said Cynthia Haskins, President and CEO. “Over the last several months, she has become knowledgeable about our promotional programs and is developing relationships within retail and foodservice industries. As Account Manager, Kowalewski will also support NYAA’s work with retail dietitians. As we prepare to market the 2019 apple harvest, we are creating new promotions and opportunities for retail dietitians. Cailin will provide valuable support to these efforts.”
In her new role, Kowalewski will work and report directly with the retail and foodservice accounts across the country, two teams that are led by Haskins and include Northeast Account Manager Susan McAleavey Sarlund.
Congratulations to Cailin Kowalewski on this next step in her apple career!
