Timmons: Tillerson Staunch Force for Dignity and Opportunity

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on the nomination of ExxonMobil Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson as secretary of state:

 

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen an expert negotiator to run the business of American diplomacy. A great friend to the NAM, Rex Tillerson has spent his life making deals and getting results; now he can put his incomparable experience, talents and connections to work on behalf of our entire country. Manufacturers are encouraged to see a leader from the manufacturing economy take on the role of America’s chief diplomat, and we are pleased that Rex will bring a business perspective to the State Department.

“Beyond his rockstar business credentials, Rex has been a staunch force for the dignity and opportunity of all citizens and will no doubt work to make our nation and our world a better place. For all of his stellar accomplishments, Rex and his wife Renda are incredibly humble, decent and relatable people of the highest character. I wish them both the best in this important endeavor and much success in the critical work that is ahead for Rex.”
