ARLINGTON, Va. — To ensure continuity and stability after a turbulent year, SNAC International members unanimously voted to extend the terms of all Executive Committee officers and Associate Executive Council (AEC) members by one year.

Rob Sarlls, president and CEO of Wyandot, remains chairman of the board, and David Read, senior vice president–sales at Printpack, continues as AEC president.

“I speak for the entire SNAC membership in expressing heartfelt gratitude to all of these volunteer leaders for their willingness and enthusiasm in extending their service to the snack industry,” said Elizabeth Avery, president and CEO, SNAC International. “Their guidance throughout the past year has ensured that our members gained maximum value from the association’s three pillars of advocacy, education and networking.”

  • Héctor De La Barreda, president, Amplify Snack Brands
