Mike Stevens, managing partner of Brian Carter Cellars, is the newly elected president of Woodinville Wine Country, the association announced today. He was elected to the position by the association board following the resignation of Becky Snyder, co-owner of Hollywood Hill Vineyards.
Stevens will finish Snyder’s term as president, serving through December 2011. She resigned from the board earlier this month to accept a marketing position outside the wine industry. "Becky’s energy, leadership and passion for advancing Woodinville as a world class wine destination will be missed," said Stevens, who has served on the board with Snyder since both were elected in 2009. In a note to membership expressing appreciation for Snyder’s service, Stevens added, "We are fortunate Becky will remain active at Hollywood Hill Vineyards with her husband Steve and will continue to work with Woodinville Wine Country as time allows."
