Blair, who will hold the chairmanship through 2014, succeeds Jim Hamilton, president of DSM Nutritional Products, USA.
Outlining his priorities for the next two years, he said: “We’ll work to educate the 113th Congress on health benefits that dietary supplements provide and how they are regulated; we’ll challenge the industry to ensure complete compliance with the laws and regulations already in place; and we’ll be zealous advocates on behalf of our members to promote a commercial marketplace and a regulatory framework supported by sound science.”
CRN’s Board also elected a lineup of new officers to serve along with Blair:
Chair Elect: Harvey Kamil, NBTY
Treasurer: Debbie Trinker, Kemin Health
Secretary: Kristen Blanchard, Nutramax Laboratories
