The National Grocers Association said it has added Chris Jones to its government relations department as senior manager of government relations.

Jones will oversee several issues, including banking, tax, data security and judiciary issues. He was formerly senior legislative assistant for Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Ark., with responsibilities for agriculture, tax, finance and transportation.

“The additional resources and skills Chris brings to our team will strengthen NGA’s ability to further public policy priorities on behalf of our members and the entire independent grocery industry,” said Greg Ferrara, NGA VP of public affairs.
