After 32 years of dedicated service to the cranberry industry, Michelle Hogan has announced her retirement effective December 31, 2021. While this was not a decision that was made lightly, Michelle is very much looking forward to spending more quality time in Florida with her family.
Michelle began her career in the cranberry industry in 1989, splitting time between the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association, the Cranberry Institute and the Cranberry Marketing Committee. Over the course of more than three decades, she has held a variety of positions at the CMC, culminating in a 2015 appointment as executive director.
Michelle’s outstanding stewardship of the CMC is marked by a strong commitment to the interests of growers, handlers, industry stakeholders and staff. Those who have interacted with Michelle know that her sense of fairness, honesty and dedication will leave a lasting positive impact on the cranberry industry.
Michelle will leave behind experienced and capable staff members who are well-positioned to carry on the important work of the CMC. Please join the Committee and staff in wishing Michelle happiness as she enters this next exciting chapter of her life.
The CMC’s Officers Committee has begun the search for its next executive director and will keep industry members informed on its progress.
