WENATCHEE — The Mission Ridge Ski Team has named Kari Johnson as its business development director.
Johnson has an extensive background in the ski industry, including 14 years of coaching ski racing. Most recently, she worked for the Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort as its human resource director and events coordinator. She had been a member of the Mission Ridge Ski Education Foundation board of directors since 2006 before stepping down to accept her new position.
The business development director position encompasses race administration, marketing, fund-raising, volunteer outreach and office administration, according to a press release issued by MRST.
“The need for additional organizational infrastructure has grown as the program has grown,” the press release said. “By aligning the business development director role with that of the Alpine Program director position held by Ryan Shorter, MRST is looking to grow the organization and provide a greater platform for developing young athletes and citizens within the community.”
