Rosa M Serrato

Ventura, Calif.– At its February 12 meeting, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved the Workforce Development Board (WDB) Membership Committee’s recommendation to appoint Rosa M. Serrato, as a WDB member for a three-year term. Serrato is corporate human resources director at Reiter Affiliated Companies (RAC).

RAC, headquartered in Oxnard, has operations worldwide with affiliates in the U.S., Mexico, Europe and Africa. It is the largest fresh, multi-berry producer in the world and the leading supplier of fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries in North America.

“With 13 years’ experience as a certified human resource professional, Rosa is passionate about career pathways and workforce development,” says Rebecca Evans, WDB executive director. “She especially understands the workforce challenges in the agriculture industry. We’re excited that she will bring her skills and perspective to the board.”

“It’s an honor to join this board alongside such talented and innovative professionals,” said Serrato. “Coming from the agriculture industry, I believe there is an opportunity to enhance collaboration between private business and academic institutions so that we may better define the knowledge and skill sets needed to support the demands of our ever-changing industry.”

Retiring from the board is Jim Faul, former WDB Board Chair, Vice-Chair and Outreach Committee member, Dr. Roger Rice, Youth and Program Committee member and Byron Lindros, Manufacturing Committee member. “We thank these three retiring members for a combined 19 years of board service,” says Evans. “Their dedication to advancing workforce growth and opportunities in Ventura County was an inspiring example for future members.”

Members of the WDB include leaders from business, economic development, education, labor, government and community-based organizations.###
