Fennig to Join GMA as VP, Industry Affairs
Elise Fennig will join Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) as vice president, industry affairs, effective Oct. 1.
Fennig comes to GMA from the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI), where she developed a strong reputation as a leader for her role managing the institute’s public and industry affairs initiatives. She most recently served as vice president of member services at AFFI.
“GMA’s Industry Affairs practice provides a unique value proposition to our members,” said Pamela G. Bailey, GMA president and CEO. “The addition of Elise Fennig strengthens the association’s ability to foster growth and value chain efficiency through greater collaboration among retailers, manufacturers and suppliers. Based on her track record in industry relations, membership services and public affairs in the consumer packaged goods industry, I know she will add tremendous value to GMA’s growth agenda.”
In her new position, Fennig will direct and manage GMA’s industry affairs initiatives and projects within the supply chain management and technology, sales and sales promotion and industry performance practice areas. She will report to Sean McBride, senior vice president, communications and marketing.
