15/02/2016: AFIA adds Director of Regulatory Affairs to staff

The American Feed Industry Association welcomes Preston Buff, PhD, who joins the staff March 4, as director of regulatory affairs. The newly created position will assist the current legislative and regulatory staff efforts. He will be based in the Arlington, Virginia, office. 

Preston comes to AFIA from Mars, Inc, where he worked for eight years at Mars Petcare and Horsecare US.

"AFIA is quite fortunate to find Preston after a nationwide search and in our own backyard," said Richard Sellers, AFIA senior vice president of public policy and education.

"I look forward to him starting in March and transitioning many of my day-to-day responsibilities to him as I focus on leading AFIA's public policy efforts. He has a tremendous skillset that will blend well with our current efforts and staff."

Preston will be responsible for medicated feed, the veterinary feed directive, AFIA's Equine and Nutrition committees, technical science issues and assisting with the legislative and regulatory efforts with the Association of American Feed Control Officials, US Food and Drug Administration, state legislative and regulatory concerns for the southeastern US, and the Food Safety Modernisation Act.

Preston will attend the Spring Committee meeting and Purchasing & Ingredient Suppliers Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, next month.

Preston earned a bachelor's degree in biology from Southwest Missouri State University, and a master's degree and a doctorate in animal sciences from the University of Missouri. He is a professional animal scientist and is board certified in equine nutrition by the American College of Animal Nutrition.

Preston and his wife, Dr Bridgett McIntosh, five dogs, six horses, two cats and four goats reside in Leesburg, Virginia.
