business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) announced that it has hired Bryan Zumwalt, vice president of federal affairs at the American Chemistry Council (ACC), to be its new executive vice president of public affairs.

The Hill reports that this is “the first big hire” by GMA’s new CEO, Geoff Freeman, who recently joined the organization from the American Gaming Association (AGA).
KC's View:
Yikes. That’s a lot of alphabet soup - GMA, ACC, EVP, CEO, AGA. I hope that these folks get GMA on the right track - you know, not hemorrhaging members - ASAP.
