ATLANTA — December 6, 2018 — At the 2018 Apparel Summit of the Americas in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, held November 27-29, Mike Todaro, managing director of the Americas Apparel Producers’ Network (AAPN), presented two AAPN Industry Achievement Awards. The award was created to recognize those AAPN members who have given exceptional leadership to the network.
The first recipient was to Jesus ‘Chuy’ Canahuati, general manager of Elcatex in Honduras. His citation reads: “In 2016, Chuy presented Honduras2020 to the AAPN Annual Conference. This led directly to a joint venture of the UTEXA Spinning operation and the 2018 Apparel Summit of the Americas. Chuy has distinguished himself as a true Leader of the Americas.”
The second award went to industry veteran Joe Cuervo. He has transitioned from the Honduras2020 staff to Kohl’s. His citation reads: “Joe began work in 2017 with AAPN on the 2018 Apparel Summit of the Americas during his time on staff at Honduras2020. Joe helped put together the agenda, tours, target list, hotels, logistics and hundreds of other details. The Summit success was virtually entirely from his leadership.”
AAPN describes this award as going to those who truly commit to the network.
The Apparel Summit of the Americas was the largest event hosted by AAPN in its 37 year history. It combined content, tours, reception, fashion show, gala dinner and much more for 250 registered and others guests.
