Food Industry Alliance of New York State
Director of Trade Relations


I direct FIA’s varied and extensive trade relations program which encompasses marketing, special events planning and execution, liaison to the supplier members and all trade-related promotional activities. Chief among my duties is the growth of supplier members in FIA’s unique Chairman’s Club, which, in turn, is the lifeblood for all other FIA trade events. I oversee and manage the annual Red Carpet Salute, Jack Duffy Golf Classic, annual Trade Summit, Regional Trade Dinners and the Charles McCullom Scholarship Saratoga Day Fundraiser. I also serve as FIA’s office manager. The most rewarding part of my job isplanning FIA’s various trade events throughout the year. The success of these events is unbelievably rewarding.
