I also see a lot of new opportunities and ways to further our mission. We are very lucky to have an incredible group of members that support our work and share our combined vision for growing the EPA and DHA category on a global basis,” she said.
Added Tom Feeley, chairman of the GOED board: “The GOED board is confident in Ellen’s ability to lead GOED into the next chapter of this tremendous organization. We look forward to many successes and great progress for the category under her leadership.”
