The Council for Responsible Nutrition, or CRN, is welcoming a new executive director of its CRN Foundation.

Brian Wommack, the organization’s current senior vice president of communications, will take over the role.

“Brian was the natural choice to lead this part of CRN’s mission, given his leadership in other aspects of service to CRN’s mission and members,” CRN president and CEO Steve Mister, who also serves on the CRN Foundation board of directors said. Mister continued, “CRN’s Board recognizes that the industry can play a critical role in addressing disparities in healthcare and nutrition, and Brian has the talents and vision to lead this initiative.”

In addition, CRN shared that it would be prioritizing access to dietary supplements and functional food with nutrition education via the newly created Access Task Force.

Led by Micah Osborne, the Access Task Force looks to define and explore opportunities surrounding accessibility, leverage the CRN Foundation for ways to achieve access through its charitable status, and enhance the member experience through good works, the company said.

“CRN members don’t just want to do business,” Wommack said. “They want to help people live better lives and have better nutrition. I look forward to helping our members bring their vision to fruition.”
