Grand Junction executive elected to irrigation association board

Katie Powell

Katie Powell, president of Munro Companies in Grand Junction, has been elected to the Irrigation Association Board of Directors.

Powell is among three newly elected board members of the organization for irrigation companies and professionals.

Powell has been involved with the Irrigation Association since 2012 and has served on the public affairs, awards and honors and landscape faculty academy committees.

She said she’s looking forward to serving on the board. “The irrigation industry contributes to such valuable aspects of our world. Irrigation grows the food that we eat; beautifies the parks, schools, and other gathering spaces for our communities; and allows homeowners and business owners to create a nurturing landscape.”

Powell joined her family’s business full-time in 2012, first as manager of business strategy and then vice president. She became president in 2019. 

She also serves as chairwoman of the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors.
