CHICAGO, November 14, 2022— The 2022 IFMA Key Person Award was presented to Senior Vice President of Demand Creation at Rich Products, Jamie McKeon at IFMA’s Presidents Conference on November 8, 2022.


The annual IFMA Key Person Award honors an individual with an exceptional record of commitment to the success of the association. The Award launched in 1988.


McKeon was recognized for being an instrumental voice on IFMA’s board of directors and most recently, on the executive committee of the board. She has been an active leader in IFMA’s long-range strategic planning process, chaired a strike team examining consumer attitudes and needs, and served as this year’s IFMA Awards Chair.


“Jamie McKeon is a phenomenal example of service to our association and industry,” said IFMA President & CEO Phil Kafarakis. “She has been a personal inspiration for me in my first year leading IFMA and I can’t think of a more deserving individual for our Key Person Award.”


IFMA’s Presidents Conference is the premier industry forum for food-away-from-home management and senior leaders across the supply chain. In 2023, the conference will run November 5-7 in Scottsdale, AZ.
