WASHINGTON — A roster of four new members of the American Bakers Association board of directors has been announced by the A.B.A. and includes Marc Albers, president and chief operating officer of United States Bakery, Portland, Ore.
Also joining the A.B.A. board will be Kevin McDonough, president of Interbake Foods L.L.C., Richmond, Va., part of Weston Foods Ltd. Mr. Albers and Mr. McDonough will begin their tenure as board members effective with the June 2013 board meeting.
Two other additions to the A.B.A. board became effective earlier this year.
In March, Joe Turano, president of Turano Baking Co., Berwyn, Ill., joined the A.B.A. board, succeeding his uncle Renato (Ron) Turano, a former A.B.A. chairman.
At the A.B.A. annual meeting, Rick McGrath joined the board in his post as president of the Allied Trades of the Baking Industry. A senior vice-president at Lockton Companies, Kansas City, Mr. McGrath succeeds Tim Miller at A.T.B.I. and on the A.B.A. board. Mr. Miller is a senior vice-president at Cereal Foods Processors, Inc., Mission Woods, Kas.
Kenneth (Chip) Klosterman, another past chairman of the A.B.A., also rotated off the group’s board. Mr. Klosterman, president of Klosterman Baking Co., Cincinnati, had been “one of the most active voices on the board since he joined in March 1996,” the A.B.A. said.
