At The Fruit Company, we pride ourselves on creating the perfect gift for all occasions. We accomplish this with our dedicated and talented team members. We are happy to highlight, Andrea Durow, who works as our Finance & Payroll Manager.
In her role, Andrea maintains company budgets, manages our payroll function and strives to continuously improve these payroll processes. Andrea has been working with us since February 2017, and resides in beautiful The Dalles, Oregon.
She moved to the United States from Chile when she was 23 years old. Learning how to speak and write in English was initially difficult for her, but after the first year Andrea felt like she was beginning to grasp it. She married the love of her life, Ryan, who grew up in The Dalles. Andrea and Ryan have two children, Emmett and Emily.
When asked why she enjoys working for The Fruit Company, she says, “It’s a great company to work for. Everyone is dedicated, sweet and great to work with. Every day is different, there’s never a dull moment here and I love how busy we are! I have the freedom to think outside of the box and have all my thoughts considered. I feel respected and valued for what I bring to the table. I am allowed to grow and show my potential. I love how family oriented The Fruit Company is.”
Outside of work, Andrea loves spending time with her family and traveling. She brings her kids everywhere. They love the outdoors including snowboarding, golfing, swimming, horseback riding and more. Andrea enjoys networking, last minute trips and reaching goals she’s set. She’s a positive person who loves to laugh.
Andrea has been a great addition to The Fruit Company team!
