WASHINGTON — The Grocery Manufacturers Association is replacing its Industry Affairs, Membership Services and Meetings groups with an Industry Affairs and Collaboration Division.
The new division will support product safety, health and nutrition, environmental sustainability, and global commerce, with a special emphasis on facilitating industry collaboration and efficiency. The group will also work cross-functionally to identify and execute business development opportunities.
It will be lead by Todd Turner, vice president, operational effectiveness; Brian Lynch, promoted to senior director, business and industry development; and Logan Kastner, promoted to director, member relations and services.
“GMA is always looking for innovative ways to provide industry leadership and enhance the value of GMA membership for food and consumer products companies,” said Denny Belcastro, executive vice president, industry affairs and collaboration, in a statement.
“This new division will allow us to do just that by realigning our capabilities to create more efficient work streams that will improve engagement opportunities and comprehensive services for our members.”
