WENATCHEE — Chuck Underwood, a 45-year veteran of the fresh produce industry, has retired from the domestic sales staff of Wenatchee-based Columbia Marketing International.

Chuck’s an extraordinary individual who’ll be greatly missed by his CMI family,” said company president Bob Mast. “The roads he pioneered with customers along his journey at CMI will forever be appreciated.”

More than four decades ago, Underwood began his career at the Growers Clearing House and then moved to NuChief Sales, now known as Honey Bear. He later helped launch the Stirling-Underwood company, which evolved into Northwest Fresh. He brought his many customer connections to CMI when he joined the company’s sales team 15 years ago, Mast said.

Of course, after 45 years of service, one never truly retires,” said Mast. “Chuck will always keep a finger on the pulse of the produce industry.”

In retirement, Underwood said he plans to enjoy more golf, more biking and more boating on Lake Chelan.
