CEDA chairman Kevin Davis commented: “The new appointments to CEDA’s board come at a time when the association is delivering on its 22 for 2022 strategic vision, launched in April, to make it the focal point for foodservice equipment operators who need design, equipment, installation and service for their operations.”
