WASHINGTON – The National Turkey Federation (NTF) here promoted three staff members to new posts.
Sherrie Rosenblatt is now v.p. of marketing and communications, Michael Rybolt is NTF's new director of scientific and regulatory affairs, and Brie Wilson was named director of member and convention services.
In her new post, Rosenblatt will ensure NTF marketing programs continue to use a variety of distribution channels to build awareness of turkey products. She also is responsible for designing and implementing the public relations program to enhance the image of the turkey industry. An eight-year veteran of the trade group, Rosenblatt most recently served as senior director of marketing and communications.
Rybolt is NTF's primary liaison to the federal agencies whose regulations affect turkey production and processing. Through his management of the technical and regulatory, live production and turkey health and worker safety and health committees, Rybolt facilitates policies for NTF that ensure those regulations are workable and science-based. He was recently appointed by the USDA secretary to serve on the National Animal Identification System Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee on Foreign Animal and Poultry Diseases. His most recent position was NTF's manager of scientific and regulatory affairs.
As director of member and convention services, Wilson oversees all NTF membership activities, including recruitment and retention of federation members, as well as planning and coordinating NTF annual conventions, meetings, workshops and seminars. Wilson joined NTF in 2000 as an assistant, and then was promoted to coordinator, in the government affairs department. In her most recent position as manager of member and convention services, she helped NTF set a new record for member recruitment.
