The Community

Wenatchee is located in the heart of Washington, a thriving community for a work-life balance. One can enjoy open skies, snow-capped mountains, and the lakes and rivers of the high desert. It is the proud home of orchards, farms and many flourishing local communities.

The quality of life in the Wenatchee Valley is unsurpassed, evident by a steadily increasing population and a strong, diverse economy. The area’s natural beauty and abundance of recreational opportunities are two of the many reasons people come to the Wenatchee Valley.

With an urban area consisting of 80,000 people, the region offers the perfect balance of larger city amenities with the relaxed and friendly environment of a smaller town.  Residents and visitors escape from their everyday routines on the Apple Capital Loop Trail, a pedestrian and bicycle path that meanders along the banks of the Columbia River, crossing at two points and connecting the cities of East Wenatchee and Wenatchee.

Along this developing waterfront you’ll find Pybus Public Market; a community gathering place with an excellent source of locally grown fruits and vegetables complimented by a quality selection of artisan and ethnic products.

An outstanding base salary, incentive plan, relocation and executive benefits package is offered~
