The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) announced that Matthew Ott, CAE, has been named the organization’s new president & CEO. Ott will assume his new role on June 1 and succeeds outgoing President & CEO, Corey Rosenbusch who left the Association earlier this year to take the helm as President & CEO of The Fertilizer Institute.
“GCCA is a vibrant global association at the forefront of one of the most critical industries in the world – the perishable food supply chain,” Matthew Ott said. “I look forward to working with the staff and members on advancing the organization and industry forward during this time of unprecedented change. “
Ott brings to GCCA extensive knowledge of the food supply chain and experience in trade association leadership through his nine years at the National Grocers Association (NGA), most recently serving as the executive vice president and chief operating officer as well as executive director of the NGA Foundation. Before joining NGA in 2011, Ott worked for the Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association (ILMA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). His expertise in driving member value, implementing strategic initiatives, and fostering organizational growth will be an asset to the association. Ott’s designation as a Certified Association Executive (CAE) demonstrates his strong commitment to achieving and maintaining excellence in the nonprofit industry.
