Welcome, James!

We at the Non-GMO Project are excited to welcome James Hoback to the team as Client Services Associate!

James recently earned his Bachelor’s of Arts and Science in Political Science from Western Washington University, where he took an interest in food systems, international business, and nonprofit work. While working at an Apple computers re-seller during college, James built a strong background in customer service and administrative work. Upon graduation, he sought out the nonprofit field and found that working at the Non-GMO Project was the perfect fit for his experience and education.

When not at work, James spends his time playing music and enjoying the outdoors. This includes playing soccer and hiking around the Pacific Northwest.
