July 14, 2016

The Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) has appointed Mark Anton, April Meyers and Katharine York to its board of directors.

Involved in the vapor industry since 2008, Mark Anton is CEO of What a Smoke, an e-cigarette manufacturer and distributor. He also serves as a principal investigator on a government contract to develop a standardized e-cigarette for research.

April Meyers is the president of Northeast Vapor Supplies, operating retail locations and manufacturing in Connecticut. She also serves as co-president of the SFATA-Connecticut chapter. Meyers is active on the state and federal levels, educating legislators and testifying on behalf of the vaping industry.  Her experience includes corporate financial communications and managing large trade show events.

Katharine York is the vice president and general counsel for Boosted E-Juice, an e-liquid manufacturing company based in Denver, Colorado. She is also president of the SFATA-Colorado chapter. York is an attorney who worked in a boutique plaintiff’s litigation firm before joining Boosted full time in 2015. York has in-depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory challenges that vapor products face at national, state and local levels.

“Each of these new board members are passionate advocates for the vaping industry, bringing unique skill sets to our board,” said Cap O’Rourke, SFATA’s board president. “Their collective experience ranging from product testing and standards to litigation and communications clearly will benefit SFATA as we look to improve transparency and help our members navigate the current regulatory and political landscape.”
