Association Names Whittel As President, Board Of Directors

Naomi Whittel

Organic & Natural Health Association has promoted Naomi Whittel as president of the board of directors, while transitioning founding president and Venable partner, Todd Harrison, to a new position as board counsel.

“This is a very exciting development for Organic & Natural Health Association as it shows how far we have grown and matured under Karen Howard’s leadership,” Harrison said.

“With Karen and Naomi leading the association’s efforts, [we are] poised to make huge gains in the near future, and I cannot think of a better person to serve as the president of our association.”

Whittel, founder and CEO of Naomi Whittel Brands, also sits on the board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center as an advisory board member.

“Originally, I was drawn to Organic & Natural Health’s commitment to transparency, accessibility, traceability and continuous quality improvement for consumers,” Whittel said.

“This is exactly where I care to focus my time and attention. Organic & Natural Health’s mission is to unite consumers and corporations and transform business practices in alignment with regenerative systems to support the health of people and the planet. With this mission, Organic & Natural Health continues to unite and develop shared solutions that honor our resources and future. I am very excited about driving forward our collective commitments in my new role as president.”

O&N Health has also appointed a new board member, Sandra Baek Lee, CEO of NJ Labs. Lee is a provider and advocate for quality in chemistry and microbiology testing that serves the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, dietary supplement, cosmetic and cannabis/CBD industries.

“We continue to keep pushing the envelope in everything that we do and when we see gaps or problems, we are quick to take action,” said Howard, CEO and executive director of O&N Health.

“This is a unique benefit of being a member of Organic & Natural Health. With us you will always be on the forefront of the big issues, without us being influenced by money or politics. Our members and board members are fully vetted to provide the most current and relevant counsel and services to confront the many challenges we face as an industry.”
