PEOPLE: AFIA Welcomes Gina Tumbarello

Gina A. Tumbarello. Gina will join the staff of the American Feed Industry (AFIA) as the manager of international trade.

Gina will be proactively engaged in representing the association’s international commerce activities, working with trade coalitions and government agencies, including the Office of the United States Trade Representative, FDA and the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

According to Richard Sellers, AFIA vice president of nutrition and feed regulation, “In recent years, AFIA members have asked for more assistance in the area of trade – both exports and imports. Therefore, it was decided to add a full-time staff person to address this need. We are very excited to have Gina join AFIA.”

Prior to USGC, she served as the manger of government contracts administration for CEVA Freight Management. Gina also served as project manager for J.E.

Gina received her bachelor’s degree in Diplomacy & Foreign Affairs and German from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio and her master’s degree in International Policy Studies from the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, Calif.
