The New Hampshire Grocers Association has promoted Kevin Daigle to president and CEO, effective Feb. 4.
Daigle was selected through a regional executive search. He has broad and extensive experience within New Hampshire’s food industry.
He has been with NHGA since 1996, and has more than 30 years of non-profit, industry and association management experience. He takes over for John Dumais, who will be retiring after 47 years with the association.
“It is my pleasure to announce the promotion of Kevin Daigle as NHGA’s new president and CEO. Kevin’s background, experience and skill set are a great foundation to continue the legacy of advocacy so carefully stewarded by John Dumais over his 47-year career” said Bruce Bergeron, chairman of the NHGA Board of Directors.
“NHGA has an impressive history of strong and effective advocacy for New Hampshire’s food industry. I look forward to continuing upon that strong foundation, and developing new initiatives that will benefit our members and our industry,” said Daigle.
The New Hampshire Grocers Association is a trade association with a membership of almost 800, consisting of independent grocers and chain stores operating convenience stores, grocery stores and supermarkets as well as their suppliers.
NHGA is dedicated to serving its membership through government relations advocacy, communication and educational programs. The association functions as the official clearinghouse on all retail food-related information within the state of New Hampshire.
