The appointment was announced during AFE’s annual event, Funding the Future of Floriculture, in Orlando, Florida, at the SAF Convention earlier this month.
Noble joins Jeronimo Herrera of Jardines de los Andes, Janet Kister of Sunlet Nursery, Inc., and Jackie Lacey of Floriology/BloomNet as new board trustees. AFE trustees serve a three-year term and help guide endowment programs that benefit the horticulture industry.
“I’m honored to join such a respected group of leaders and one of our industry’s most trusted charitable organizations,” explained Noble. “I look forward to working with the board and finding new ways to support and advance our industry.”
AFE also announced its new chairman of the board at the convention. Ken Young of Phoenix Flower Shops now begins his two-year term as AFE chairman, succeeding Laura Shinall of FreshPath Marketing, who served as chairman for the past two years.
