The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) in the US has announced new members of the organisation’s executive council as well as new directors for the group’s five industry segment boards. IDFA’s executive council is composed of executives from across the dairy foods industry and focuses on the business and operations of the association. The officers include David Ahlem, CEO and president, Hilmar Cheese Company, and Stan Ryan, president and CEO of Darigold.

The five industry segment boards represent fluid milk, ice cream, cheese, yogurt and cultured products, and dairy-derived ingredients, and are composed of experts and executives who help drive policy and strategy alongside the association’s leadership.

“These executives were nominated and approved based on their demonstrated leadership, business expertise and willingness to dedicate time to the continued growth of IDFA and the dairy industry in the US,” says Dan Zagzebski, chair of IDFA’s nomination and governance committee.

Together, the executive council and industry segment boards make up IDFA’s governance structure and ensure that IDFA represents and engages all segments of the growing dairy industry in the US.

“I’m thrilled to have such an experienced and diverse set of leaders joining the IDFA executive council and industry segment boards,” says Michael Dykes, president and CEO of IDFA. “Their knowledge, experience and input will guide our regulatory, legislative, communications and membership services so that IDFA is working in the best interest of its members to make a difference for dairy.”
