The NGA Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the National Grocers Association, has announced two staff promotions.

Chelsea Matzen will be assuming the role of director of the NGA Foundation, overseeing all department programs, including scholarships, industry promotion, leadership development, diversity and inclusion and student programs.

After four years with the National Farmers Union, Matzen joined NGA in 2020 as project manager of the NGAF TA Center, which provides nutrition incentive information to grocers. She was promoted to director of the TA Center in 2021.

“Over the past two years, Chelsea has done a great job of supporting and leading the NGAF TA Center,” said Greg Ferrara, NGA president and CEO.

“Her expanded role as director of the NGA Foundation will allow her to harness her expertise around grants and non-profit organizations to further enhance the important work that the NGA Foundation does each day in support of the independent supermarket industry.”

UPDATE: Chelsea Matzen has been named VP, NGA Foundation as of July 28, 2023.

Additionally, Josh Anderegg has been promoted to project director of the NGA Foundation Technical Assistance Center.

Anderegg joined NGA earlier this year as NGAF TA Center project manager, helping meet project deliverables, coordinating team subject matter experts and managing relationships with other grant partners. As project director, he will take on an expanded role, creating budgets, increasing industry partnerships and managing the entire NGAF TA Center team.

“Over the last two years, the NGAF TA Center has provided independent community grocers with information about nutrition incentives so they can easily incentivize their customers to purchase healthy produce,” Matzen said.

“We have made great strides and I’m looking forward to seeing Josh build upon these accomplishments, providing training and technical assistance to support America’s independent grocers.”
