The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) announced that Meghan Rodgers has been named as the organization’s new Vice President of Public Relations and Industry Affairs.

“Meghan will provide strong public relations and communications leadership to GCCA and will help us in our efforts to promote the importance of our vital industry,” said Matthew Ott, President and CEO of GCCA. “These unprecedented times have showcased the essential work that our member companies perform day in and day out to ensure that people across the world have access to the safest, highest quality goods. Meghan will help us continue to tell that story.”

Rodgers brings to GCCA extensive communications leadership and knowledge of the food supply chain, specifically through her four years serving at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, most recently as Deputy Director for Communications. Rodgers has travelled domestically and internationally, meeting with leaders of many agriculture and food industry companies, providing her an intimate understanding of the food supply chain, hunger and nutrition issues, food logistics and the complex processes involved in feeding the world population. Prior to her work at USDA, Rodgers worked on Capitol Hill for two different Members of the United States Congress.

“Our global cold supply chain and food logistics industries play such a critical role in society, and often go unappreciated,” Rodgers said. “I look forward to working with all GCCA’s staff and members to advance the industry during this challenging time and tell the story of the cold chain.”
