Fredericka Mcgee Joins American Beverage Association as Vice President
24 Feb 2016 --- Fredericka McGee has been named as vice president of California government affairs and operations for the American Beverage Association (ABA), by Susan K. Neely, president and chief executive officer of the association.
Most recently, McGee served as the deputy chief of staff and general counsel in the Office of Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, where she oversaw litigation strategy, served as the spokesperson on judiciary and court budget issues, and oversaw major functions of the speaker’s office.
"Our industry has a strong presence in California; Fredericka’s extensive experience in state politics, her long-time service to the Assembly and to five Assembly speakers, and her deep understanding of statewide public policy will be a tremendous asset to the association as well as the communities we serve," Neely said.
As vice president of California government affairs and operations, Fredericka will represent ABA member companies, including California bottlers, before lawmakers and regulatory bodies across California. California’s non-alcoholic beverage industry directly employs nearly 24,000 people, supports nearly 88,000 more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihoods, and has a direct economic impact of more than $17 billion. McGee began her role at ABA on February 22.
“I have had a wonderful career in public service and am privileged to now join an iconic and innovative industry that also is focused on giving back to the communities in which its employees live, work and play,” McGee said.
