CRN’s MacKay to depart

Some changes are coming to the Council for Responsible scientific and regulatory affairs leadership. The organization announced that Duffy MacKay, senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs, will be departing CRN, effective March 15, to become senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs at CV Sciences.

Andrew Shao, who led CRN’s science and regulatory team from 2005-2011, will serve in the role on an interim basis after March 1. CRN said it has launched an assessment of its leadership needs to meet its strategic plans and that it would name a permanent head of science and regulatory affairs later this year.

“It has been an immense privilege to have Duffy’s service and leadership over the past decade, and we are grateful for all of his contributions to CRN and to our industry,” said Steve Mister, CRN president and CEO. “We wish Duffy all the best as he leaves CRN for this exciting opportunity, and we look forward to seeing his continued success.”

Shao has nearly 20 years’ experience in the global nutrition industry, including various leadership roles in nutrition, scientific, regulatory and government affairs. He was most recently Amway/Nutrilite’s regulatory and policy science director. He also previously worked at Herbalife Nutrition, in roles that included vice president of global nutrition policy and vice president of worldwide scientific affairs.
