“Dr. Wallace’s background will nicely complement that of our well-established scientific team, and we’re looking forward to the fresh perspective his background will provide,” said Steve Mister, president and CEO, CRN. “We were impressed with the amount of work he has published in his short career along with the relationships he has built within the scientific research community.”
Dr Wallace joins CRN’s science team that includes John Hathcock, PhD, Duffy MacKay, ND, and consultant and former CRN president, Annette Dickinson, PhD.
After earning his PhD in Food Science and Technology from The Ohio State University, Dr Wallace worked as a graduate research assistant and graduate teaching assistant at The Ohio State University, and, most recently, has served as the scientific communications program manager at the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), North America.
“People have asked me how we would replace Dr Andrew Shao [who recently accepted a position at Herbalife], and, quite frankly, that would be very hard to do,” added Mister.
“Each member of CRN’s staff team brings unique strengths, skills and capabilities, so the task was to find someone with the energy and expertise to address the issues affecting our members. During our search process, we were impressed by Dr. Wallace’s intelligence, enthusiasm, and reputation, and we knew he was someone we wanted to hire, someone who could grow with our association.
“We are, however, continuing to actively recruit for a senior candidate for CRN’s scientific and international regulatory efforts, and encourage anyone with an interest in that position to contact our recruiter, Brian Stuesser,” he added.
