The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) has announced three new members of its Board of Directors and Executive Committee.

The appointments were announced at the organization's fall meeting on Nov. 15. The new members of the expanded board are Matt Malott, President and CEO of Multivac, Inc, as Assistant Treasurer to the FPSA Executive Committee and Tom Hoffman of MEPACO, Inc., and Patrick McGady of Handtmann, Inc, who were elected Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively of the newly formed FPSA Pet Food Council. Hoffman and McGady will hold seats on the Association’s Board of Directors as well.

“Tom and Patrick’s leadership will help take this already greatly engaged Council to a higher level” said Jarrod McCarroll, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Weber, Inc. “The creation of the Pet Food Council this year has created an enormous amount of energy within the membership and we look forward to the programs that it will develop in the near future.”

“Expanding the Executive Committee also delivers a new dimension to this group,” said Jarrod McCarroll. “This Committee is responsible for developing the strategy of the Association and by adding one of the leading suppliers to the food and beverage industry, FPSA benefits greatly from Matt’s experience, insights, and market perspective. This will greatly enhance our deliberative process as we look forward to a busy show year and the development of new member programs.”
