We’re excited to share with you that Adam Kody has been promoted to the role of ACEnet’s Director of Operations! Be sure to congratulate him when you see him around ACEnet!

A familiar face in the Food Ventures Center, and integral part of the ACEnet programming team, Adam initially joined the ACEnet staff in December 2016, serving as the Food Enterprise Coordinator, managing ACEnet’s shared-use kitchen incubator, and providing training and technical assistance to small food and farm businesses.

“Stepping into the role of Director of Operations at ACEnet is a great opportunity to continue to add value to our organization and region as a whole. In my previous role as Food Enterprise Coordinator I experienced tremendous growth as a trainer, manager, facilitator, advisor and leader in our immediate region, while expanding ACEnet’s reach and forming networks across Central Appalachia and beyond. I am grateful to ACEnet’s senior leadership and Board of Directors for this opportunity and look forward to embracing the responsibility that comes with it.

In my new role as Director of Operations, I look forward to streamlining the client experience and contributing further to the strategic vision of ACEnet as an economic difference-maker in our region. ACEnet – and in-turn, our regional economy – is only as strong as the small businesses that exist here. We must continue to give them the tools they need to be successful.”
