MMA restructures into global business units

Share this article:
On the heels of Mike Wehrs' departure last month as the global CEO, the MMA has announced that it is restructuring the global organization in which its four operating regions --Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Latin America and North America -- will be transformed into business units. 

Paul Berney will head up Europe and the Middle East. Rohit Dadwal will run the Asia Pacific unit and Michael Becker will assume the role of managing director, North America Branch.  All of the managing directors will report to the MMA's interim CEO, Federico Pisani Massamormile, who will be heading Latin America.

As part of this shift, the managing directors of each region will take on the responsibility to address regional and local needs, while still focusing on global scalability. Managing directors will continue to foster member communities, launching new in-country local councils and perform MMA Forum events.  Each business unit will continue to adhere to the MMA's Consumer Best Practices guidelines.
