Troy Flanagan named International Franchise Association government relations director.

The International Franchise Association has named Troy Flanagan to be its director of government relations. He assumed his new duties for the association May 15.

Prior to joining IFA, Flanagan was the director of government relations at ConAgra Foods and represented the food manufacturer before federal, state and international governments.

Flanagan spent five years working in or with state legislatures, including positions on both the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate, and a later position as manager of state affairs at the Grocery Manufacturers of America.

"Troy Flanagan's appointment will help us strengthen relations between the franchising community and policymakers at the state and federal level," said IFA President Matthew Shay. "He is joining at a crucial time because major issues are arising for the franchising small business community ranging from affordable health care, repeal of the estate tax and litigation reform."
