• FMI – The Food Industry Association announced the appointment of Dan Ratner, most recently membership and business development strategist for Next Steps LLC, as senior director of member services.
• Starbucks announced that Brady Brewer, the company's Senior Vice President, Digital Customer Experience, has been promoted to the role of Chief Marketing Officer.
