WASHINGTON The Council for Responsible Nutrition on Thursday announced the addition of six members to its roster—voting members Avon Products and Country Life Vitamins and associate members Burdock Group, EAS, Grifcon Enterprises and Miami Research Associates.
“We are pleased to have added two voting companies in segments of the industry that offer important growth,” stated Steve Mister, CRN president and chief executive officer. “Avon is a household name worldwide and they add to the prestigious portion of our direct selling representation. Country Life represents a segment of the industry—the natural health business—that we view as integral to the sale of supplements. “
EAS and Miami Research Associates are returning to CRN.
CRN also announced the promotions of two CRN staffers at its March quarterly meeting. Judy Blatman, who joined CRN in 2001, has been promoted to senior vice president, communications, and John Hathcock, a 12-year CRN veteran, has been promoted to senior vice president, scientific and international affairs.
“[Judy] Blatman has spearheaded numerous successful communications initiatives at CRN and Dr. Hathcock has brought world-wide recognition to the association’s commitment to science,” stated Marjorie Fine, CRN chairman and executive vice president and general counsel of Shaklee Corporation.
