Rosenberg was named NAMA's Industry Person of the Year in 2016 and has served on the NAMA board of directors.  

CHICAGO, IL – JULY 28, 2020 – Industry veteran Josh Rosenberg has begun his one-year tenure as NAMA Chair.

Rosenberg, who joined the NAMA Board in 2015 and was named Industry Person of the Year in 2016, served as President and CEO of Accent Food Services until last year, where he led a team of more than 550 employees, with a focus on innovation, customer engagement and a dynamic corporate culture.  Today, Rosenberg is Director at Philadelphia-based USA Bottling, a manufacturer of finished personal care products, bottled beverages, and sanitation finished goods.  Josh resides in the Austin area with his three boys, Ethan, Isaac, and Elijah.

He began his career as a merchandiser at Coca-Cola, in 1995. Through Rosenberg’s passion for vending and a vision for integrating technology, he grew to lead the development of Coca-Cola’s North America vending sales strategy as Vice President of National Vending Sales, prior to his ownership in Accent Food Service.

“I look forward to my role as Chair, particularly at this critical time.  It’s an honor to have the responsibility to work collaboratively on the behalf of NAMA members.  We’re ready to do whatever it takes to support the industry, as we face challenges together,” said Rosenberg.

“That said, I’m optimistic about the future of the industry. NAMA is here for operators -- we have never before needed to share business resources and intel as we do now,” he continued.  “The outlook is ultimately very positive.”
