IDDBA president and CEO Michael Eardley to retire

A search is underway to find a replacement, with interviews scheduled to take place next January

The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) has announced its president and CEO Michael Eardley is retiring.

Though it’s unclear when Eardley will officially step down from his post, a press release from the non-profit organization said the IDDBA executive committee has begun a search for his replacement.

The committee will accept letters of interest and resumes through Dec. 3, according to the release. The committee will reach out to candidates for an interview in January 2023.

“We are thankful for Mike’s guidance of the association throughout his tenure,” said Dotty Vandermolen of Fresh Solutions, and immediate past chair of the board, in a press release. “His knowledge and dedication to our industry enabled IDDBA to grow our annual trade show event and year-round educational resources.”
