We took note of two individuals in the listing of the top 100 lobbyists in Washington DC and we want to congratulate them both on being named – Robert Cresanti, President and CEO of the International Franchise Association and Cicerly Simpson, Vice President of the National Restaurant Association.  Bob joined the IFA in 2014 to head up its government affairs operation and took the helm of the organization a year ago. Cicerly was the Dunkin’ Brands Vice President for Government Affairs until April of last year when she assumed her current post. We congratulate both on jobs well-done and honors well-deserved!
