“We are thrilled to have Kristin join our team. Not only is her background perfect, having run multiple Oregon wineries, she’s been through the M&A process several times as an operator, giving her unique insight to serve our clients. Most importantly though, Kristin has proven herself to be one of the most trusted, respected, and capable professionals in the business. We are confident her addition will enhance the services METIS is able to provide our clients and the industry,” said Erik McLaughlin, CEO of METIS.
