FMI-The Food Industry Association has named Advantage Solutions CEO Dave Peacock to its board of directors, along with 17 other high-level grocery retail, wholesale and food industry executives.

As the nation’s leading food industry association, FMI works with and on behalf of the entire industry to advance a safer, healthier and more efficient consumer food supply chain. Its members include independent and chain retailers, food manufacturers and companies providing critical services to the food industry.

In addition to his role at Advantage, Peacock is a 30-year veteran of the retail and consumer packaged goods industries, having served as president and chief operating officer of Schnuck Markets and as company president at Anheuser-Busch.

“It’s an honor to join a group of talented industry leaders on the FMI board of directors, and I look forward to working alongside them to advance the organization’s mission of feeding families and enriching lives,” Peacock said.

Peacock and other Advantage senior leaders plan to attend FMI’s Midwinter Conference in January.

The new board additions were elected at FMI’s September board meeting and reflect the association’s diverse retailer, distributor and supplier membership.

“FMI is incredibly grateful to have leaders from across the food industry serve on our board of directors, who believe whole-heartedly in our mission to feed families and enrich lives,” says FMI President and CEO Leslie Sarasin. “Their dedication to supporting our industry through moments of uncertainty as well as opportunity guides the work we do every day for our members and inspires us to strive for continuous improvement.”

In addition to Peacock, other industry leaders named to the FMI board include:

“FMI greatly appreciates our incoming Directors for volunteering their time to ensure our association is strategically positioned to best meet the needs of our members and their customers through advocacy with policymakers, collaboration among industry peers and educational opportunities to enhance industry knowledge and foster the next generation of leaders,” says Sarasin. “We look forward to continuing to build on these successes through the leadership of FMI Chairman Brian George at the helm and our slate of new and current Directors.”
