AgriFORCE, an agriculture-focused technology company, announces that it has appointed senior government affairs executive, Amy E. Griffith, to the Company’s board of directors. Ms. Griffith will serve on the board's Executive Compensation, Audit, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees.
Amy Griffith is Wells Fargo’s State & Local Government Relations Senior Leader for the Northeast Region encompassing Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine.
Ms. Griffith stated, “I am honored to join the board of AgriFORCE to help raise awareness and assist in advancing the company’s disruptive business model around its unique IP agricultural facility. In stark contrast to traditional indoor growing environments, this facility is designed to allow plants to achieve their full genetic yield optimization. I look forward to working closely with the management and board of AgriFORCE to help maximize value for shareholders.”
"I am pleased to welcome Amy, as a new independent director to the AgriFORCE board and value her expertise on financial, regulatory, and governance matters," said Ingo Mueller, CEO of AgriFORCE. "She joins AgriFORCE at an exciting time, as we prepare for the commercialization phase of our proprietary and patent-pending facility design and automated growing system. Importantly, consumers are increasingly seeking out fresh, locally grown produce and ingredients; however, there are multiple issues such as crop and pesticide drift – including into the water table. We also believe her appointment illustrates our commitment to the highest levels of corporate governance.”
