business news in context, analysis with attitude

Thomas Wenning, the longtime executive vice president/general counsel for the National Grocers Association (NGA), said yesterday that he will retire from the trade association, effective December 31.

Wenning took on his current role at NGA when the National Association of Retail Grocers of the United States (NARGUS) and the Cooperative Food Distributors of America merged on October 1, 1982. Prior to joining NGA, he was a partner for 9 years with his father-in-law, Henry J. Bison, Jr., in the law firm of Bison and Wenning that provided Washington, DC representation for NARGUS, National Food Brokers Association, and National American Wholesale Grocers Association.
