NDWA names new public affairs head.

Gary Galanis, press secretary for retiring U.S Representative Brian Donnelly (D-MA), has joined the National Beer Wholesalers Association as director of public affairs.

Upon graduation the University of New Hampshire in 1983, Galanis was hired by former Florida Governor Reubin Askew to act as press secretary in New Hampshire during his presidential campaign. Following the Askew campaign, Galanis joined the American Welding Society in Miami as conference manager to organize national education conferences.

Before joining Rep. Connelly's office in 1988, Galanis managed U.S. Senator Paul Simon's New Hampshire primary campaign for president. Galanis later became deputy national press secretary in Washington.

"Gary Galanis brings a wealth of public affairs and political experience to this position," NBWA president Ron Sarasin said.

"His years on Capitol Hill will allow him to hit the ground running with a thorough understanding of how the Congress works and a good knowledge of the issues affecting beer wholesalers," Sarasin continued. "His background will further enhance our primary government affairs mission."

Galanis will be responsible for "Beer Perspectives," NBWA's weekly newsletter, as well as relations with the trade and general public.
