Organic Trade Association Executive Director DiMatteo Steps Down

The Organic Trade Association announced that that Katherine DiMatteo will be stepping down next spring. DiMatteo, the OTA’s Executive Director for 16 years has been a leader in the creation of numerous victories for those committed to organic food, most notably the often contentious and sometimes mind-numbing bureaucratic battle for the USDA National Organic Program in 2002. According to Supermarket News, the organization has hired the recruiting firm of Kittleman & Associates to hire DiMatteo’s replacement prior to her spring 2006 departure.

Katherine, we’re hoping you’d like to write a book. We’d love to hear the stories behind the battles. And if you need someone to write it, or just a ghostwriter call us.

Thanks for the hard work. We’re better off for it.
