Job Growers appoints new director

SALEM -- Tony Frazier was recently appointed the new executive director of Job Growers Incorporated, the workforce investment board covering Polk, Marion and Yamhill counties.

Frazier started his new position on July 1. He most recently was executive director of Habitat for Humanity Mid-Willamette Valley.

Frazier comes to Job Growers with more than 12 years of experience in nonprofit organizations. His experience with at-risk youth and managing federal Department of Labor YouthBuild projects, as well as with many aspects of federal funding including contract bid processes, grant requirements and outcomes, and federal regulations, make him an ideal choice for the job, said Michael Fowler, president of Job Growers Incorporated's board of directors.

"Tony's proven abilities to have the vision needed to move an organization forward in the face of some daunting challenges will be a great asset to our organization," Fowler said. "He has already begun to build the connections and partnerships throughout the community that will help him achieve his vision."
