Association Professional Awards Go to Cory Rosenbush of GCCA

Corey Rosenbusch, president and chief operating officer (COO) of the Alexandria, Virginia, USA-headquartered Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), has snapped up two prestigious association professional awards, among then the Association Forum of Chicagoland and USAE’s inaugural Forty Under 40® award. The program recognizes 40 association and nonprofit professionals who are under the age of 40 and demonstrate strong leadership skills and potential, along with a solid commitment to the association industry. The inaugural class of honorees was selected from nearly 150 applicants.

Rosenbusch has also been selected by Association Trends as a 2013 Young & Aspiring Association Professional. Nominated by senior executives and peers for their contributions and leadership, the Young & Aspiring Association Professionals represent the present and future of association management. Awardees must be younger than 40 and active and well-respected in the association community.

As a GCCA executive, Rosenbusch works closely with association leaders to provide programs and services that strengthen the global cold chain industry. He was recognized for several accomplishments including, growing membership by 33%, opening three international offices,  building partnerships with European and Australian associations, and operating surpluses and expanding services during a down economy.
Before joining the association, Rosenbusch served as the director of a Texas A&M University cold chain development project in Indonesia. He also worked with leading food industry executives in his role as president of the National FFA Organization (Future Farmers of America).

Comprised of the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses, the World Food Logistics Organization, the International Refrigerated Transportation Association, and the International Association for Cold Storage Construction, the Global Cold Chain Alliance represents all major industries engaged in temperature-controlled logistics.
