Gaddis To Leave GAMA

Evan Gaddis will resign as president and CEO of Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) in mid-September to become president and CEO of National Electronic Manufacturers Association (NEMA). GAMA is currently conducting a search for his replacement and expects to make a decision by the end of August, Gaddis said. He said the organization's financial strength, new program launches and increased membership size will make the transition go smoothly.

Gaddis will replace Malcolm O'Hagan at NEMA. Prior to GAMA, Gaddis held an Army career that ended as commander of U.S. Army recruiting.
