Barry Rosenbaum, president of Nassau Candy Distributors, stood as the new chairman of the National Confectioners Association’s board of trustees during the fall meeting.
Rosenbaum succeeds former NCA chairman Paul Chibe, who recently transitioned from his role as CEO, Ferrero North America, to his new position as Global President, Sugar Confectionery and Gums, based in Ferrero’s Luxembourg office.
Rosenbaum said, “I am thrilled to continue my work with NCA on behalf of the confectionery industry in this new position. NCA has a long history of advocating effectively for the confectionery industry, and I look forward to working alongside the NCA team and my colleagues on NCA’s board to ensure the $37 billion confectionery industry continues to thrive.”
John Downs, president and CEO of NCA, said, “The future of the confectionery industry will be defined by innovation and change, and with Barry and Tony, we will have the smart, decisive leaders at the helm we need to guide us through what lies ahead. I know that in working with them, we will be able to prime the industry for sustained growth and continue developing NCA as the thoughtful leading voice of the confectionery industry.”
