Bailey Leaves The Council for Grocery Manufacturers



Pamela G. Bailey, president and chief executive officer of the Personal Care Products Council (The Council) has been appointed president and CEO of the Grocery Manufacturers Association. The Council has appointed Mark Pollak interim president and CEO. Prior to this appointment, Mr. Pollak was executive vice president, strategic initiatives and secretary. He has been with The Council for 25 years.
   
“I am extremely pleased that Pam Bailey has agreed to take the helm of GMA,” said Douglas R. Conant, president and CEO of Campbell Soup Company, and chairman of the board of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) in a statement.
   
“In these trying economic times, GMA’s leadership is critical to the continued success of the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods industry. Pam’s extensive experience in government service, bipartisan approach to public policy, success as a trade association leader and her strong credentials in the consumer packaged goods industry made her an obvious choice to position GMA to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
   
Ms. Bailey has served as president and CEO of the Council since 2005, where she utilized strategic and organizational leadership to redefine the direction of the association, enacted the industry’s first-ever Consumer Commit- ment Code and enhanced the association’s advocacy and communications capabilities.
   
The Council is the leading trade association representing the $250 billion global cosmetic and personal care products industry. Its member companies manufacture a diverse range of products, including sunscreen, toothpaste, shampoo, moisturizer, lipstick and fragrances.
