Next week, International Fragrance Association (IFRA) North America will add a new member to its team. Amanda Nguyen will join IFRA North America as the director of government affairs and legal, effective July 25.
Most recently, Nguyen served as an Assistant Attorney General at the Tennessee Office of the Attorney General and Reporter. There, she was involved with multi-state suits and compliance efforts through the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), drafting and advocating for legislation, and litigating consumer and regulatory issues.
