Rich Stinson — president and CEO of Carrollton, Georgia-based Southwire Company, LLC — has been named to the National Association of Manufacturers’ board of directors.
The NAM was founded in 1895 and is the “largest industrial trade association in the United States, with more than 14,000 members,” the organization said.
“I am honored to join the NAM Board and represent Southwire as we work to contribute to the continued growth and success of all manufacturers,” Stinson said. “Our company has a clear growth strategy and a commitment to remain generationally sustainable for the next 100 years and beyond. As our world becomes even more connected and as electrification plays an even greater role, I look forward to working alongside my industry peers to promote opportunity and prosperity and, ultimately, further strengthen the future of manufacturing.”
Stinson will be expected to bolster the NAM’s leadership in policy advocacy, workforce solutions, legal action, operational excellence and news and insights.
