ARLINGTON, Va. The Food Marketing Institute has promoted its group VP government retlations to SVP government and public affairs.
Jennifer Hatcher will continue to direct all federal and state public affairs outreach work for the nation’s leading supermarket industry trade association. She reports to Leslie Sarasin, president and CEO at FMI.
“Jennifer’s outstanding leadership on issues critical to FMI members and her sharp skills as a coalition-builder and strategic thinker on public policy challenges and opportunities make her an extraordinary advocate for food retailers and wholesalers,” Sarasin said. “Her extensive knowledge of the public policy process and its intricacies has been a tremendous asset to FMI and its members.”
Prior to joining FMI in 1998, Hatcher served as chief of staff to Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., who currently holds the Ranking Member position on the House Financial Services Committee.
