According to a recent survey conducted by the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), cold chain industry professionals need more and better industry data and trends to make business decisions and support company goals.
Therefore, to advance the work of its members and the cold chain industry as a whole, GCCA says it is expanding its research capabilities.
“GCCA is dedicated to solving its members’ business challenges,” said Corey Rosenbusch, GCCA president and CEO. “Increasing GCCA’s market intelligence function underscores and augments our commitment to members and the cold chain.”
As part of its new efforts, GCCA hired a director of market intelligence and research, Jason Troendle, who comes to the organization from the Context Network, where he served as a senior business analyst, and provided strategic, market and financial analysis around the agriculture, biotechnology and food industries.
Troendle has a master’s in applied economics and management from Cornell University.
“The cold chain industry is increasingly dynamic, and I look forward to uncovering information that can directly help GCCA members grow their businesses and improve profitability,” Troendle said.
GCCA says it plans to continue to generate content members and industry professionals rely on, such as the IARW Productivity and Benchmarking Report and Global Cold Storage Capacity Report. Now, with Troendle’s leadership, the organization also expects to develop additional resources that can advance the industry.
