Rebekah Milford recently joined the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council as their new director of marketing and communications.
“I look forward to working with PIJAC on the myriad of issues facing the pet industry,” said Milford. “Through enhancing our member engagement and increasing awareness of the pet industry and all that we do nationwide for pets and pet owners. PIJAC’s story, along with that of its members, is an important one and I’m delighted to be a part of sharing that with the American public.”
Milford joins PIJAC after working in polling and political consulting, campaign and advocacy involvement. Her experience in working in the U.S. Senate and for the federal government is an asset to PIJAC’s overall mission and enhances the strategic goals of the communications team, the organization said.
In addition to overseeing PIJAC’s communications program, she will play a lead role in the planning and execution of the annual Pet Industry’s Top2Top Conference, which will be held at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa April 28-30, 2015.
“I’ve grown up with dogs, cats, hamsters and fish and even had my own Chinchilla, who I called Cinderella,” said Milford. “Now I have one dog, POTUS, who is an important part of my family so I’m excited to join the PIJAC team to continue the good work of protecting animals and those who work with them.”
