Food and Beverage Ontario has appointed Chris Conway as the organization’s new CEO.

Conway has led three associations, most recently as CEO for Career Colleges Ontario and prior to that President of Concrete Ontario. He has over 15 years of experience in provincial government relations and began his career on Parliament Hill.

“I am looking forward to working closely with the FBO members, to ensure the association continues to be a powerful advocate and facilitator of success for all categories of the food processor business in Ontario and globally,” said Conway.

Former CEO, Norm Beal, is stepping down to take an active role in his business, Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery.
