AppHarvest appoints CEA industry veteran to board of directors

AppHarvest announced the appointment of seasoned controlled environment agriculture (CEA) executive Tony Martin as an independent director of the company and a member of the audit committee, effective immediately.

Martin served as chief financial officer for nearly 12 years at Windset Farms, one of the largest CEA producers and marketers of indoor-grown crops in North America, with more than 250 acres in the U.S. and Canada. At Windset, he supported both significant infrastructure and revenue growth. Martin currently serves as a consultant in the CEA sector and is a board member of the Fruit & Vegetable Dispute Resolution Corporation, a non-profit that sets standards for the trade of fresh fruits and vegetables in Canada.

“As AppHarvest focuses on improving core operations and diversifying its produce offerings with three new at-scale farms this year, I expect Tony’s depth of experience to help us optimize revenue generation,” said AppHarvest Founder & CEO Jonathan Webb.

Martin, a chartered professional accountant, earned a bachelor of commerce in accounting and finance and a graduate diploma in accounting, audit, and taxation at Concordia University in Canada. Martin fills a board seat vacated by Ciara Burnham.
