Veteran American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) employee Richard Sellers has been promoted to senior vice president.

The announcement was made at the association's October Board Meeting in Des Moines, Iowa. Sellers previously served as AFIA's vice president of feed regulation and nutrition.

"Richard really enjoys working with and helping members," said AFIA Chairman Jeff Cannon at a Board dinner held at the World Food Prize building. "He gets far and away the most member calls for advice and leadership, fulfilling one of our '4 Promises.' Richard sets the bar for member services."

Sellers has served AFIA for 22 years providing leadership on legislative and regulatory issues as well as serving as the organization's corporate secretary. He leads AFIA's feed legislative and regulatory activities with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and state feed agencies.

He also serves as the staff coordinator for the Feed Regulatory Committee, Aquaculture Committee and as a technical advisor to the Nutrition Committee.

"Richard's contributions to AFIA are continuous and significant, and our organization's staff and members appreciate his enthusiasm toward the industry and the challenges it can produce," said AFIA President and CEO Joel G. Newman. "Richard is my most trusted advisor on many issues, a team player and well deserving of the promotion to senior vice president."

Sellers holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Memphis and master's degree from the University of Arkansas in animal sciences. Previously Sellers served as a feed control official for the state of Texas. He is also a registered professional animal scientist with the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS).
