AMI Names Tom Super Vice President of Public Affairs

Monday, February 28, 2011

Washington, D.C. — The American Meat Institute (AMI) today announced that Tom Super has been named vice president of public affairs for the Institute.

Super has served AMI as senior director of media outreach since June 2008.

In his new position, Super will handle press relations and media outreach, plan and execute communications strategies around the Institute’s legislative and regulatory priorities and supervise social media efforts.  He will continue his role in managing the day-to-day operation of the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council. 

Prior to joining AMI, Super spent six years at Greener and Hook LLC, a Washington-based strategic communications consulting firm where his focus was on planning and executing communications strategies and delivering strategic communications and media relations counsel to corporations, trade associations, ad-hoc organizations, non-profits and political candidates at the local, state and federal levels.  

Prior to his tenure at Greener and Hook, Super served three years on Capitol Hill as a legislative aide for United States Senator John W. Warner (R-VA).

“Tom has been an invaluable member of our communications team for nearly three years.  His expanded role will enable him to communicate industry issues more broadly to a wider range of audiences,” said AMI President J. Patrick Boyle.

A graduate of Washington & Lee University, in Lexington, Virginia, Super earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in public policy.
