Jay Timmons Named President of Manufacturers

By December 21, 2010General

No interregnum here at the National Association of Manufacturers, as we enter 2011 and policy discussions with the 112th Congress with Jay Timmons as president of the NAM. Congratulations, Jay!

From NAM’s news release, “National Association of Manufacturers Names Jay Timmons President and CEO“:

Timmons has served as Executive Vice President at the NAM and will succeed former Michigan Governor John Engler in this position.

Timmons has extensive experience in government relations, public affairs, political campaigns and business. He is a proven leader at the NAM, working alongside the nation’s leading manufacturers, members of Congress, and the Administration to advance a pro-manufacturing agenda.

“I have a deep respect for Jay and his exceptional experience,” said Michael Campbell, NAM Board Chair and president and CEO of Arch Chemicals, Inc. “It is a testament to the depth and development of talent at the NAM that we have an internal candidate as well qualified as Jay to succeed John Engler. Jay has a keen understanding of manufacturing and he has relationships on both sides of the aisle in Washington.  Jay has helped lead the NAM during good economic times – and has remained unflappable during the most difficult economic times manufacturers have ever faced. His experience and personal conviction for the manufacturing cause make him an ideal choice for this position. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Jay as we build upon the NAM’s great success and momentum in advancing a national jobs agenda.”
