OTC health care group taps CBD executive for dietary-supplements team

A lobbying and advocacy group that represents over-the-counter drugmakers has tapped an executive from California CBD company CV Sciences to lead its cross-functional dietary supplements team.

Duffy MacKay, CV Sciences’ senior vice president, will join the executive team of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association, a Washington-based industry group that dates to 1881.

The Association represents consumer healthcare companies that make over-the-counter medicines, dietary supplements, and consumer medical devices.

Association president Scott Melville called MacKay an “accomplished and highly respected leader of the dietary supplements industry.”

The appointment begins Oct. 18.
