SPARTANBURG, S.C. — April 14, 2022 — Diversified manufacturer Milliken & Company is pleased to share that its President and CEO Halsey Cook was elected to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Manufacturers (“NAM”) this month. Cook, along with the other industry leaders currently serving on the board, bolsters the association’s leadership in policy advocacy, workforce solutions, legal action, operational excellence and news and insights affecting the manufacturing industry.
Founded in 1895, the NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the U.S., with more than 14,000 members. The NAM is the nation’s most influential manufacturing advocate, and its membership includes both iconic global brands and local manufacturers that power the domestic economy.
“Serving on the NAM Board is an honor and a responsibility,” shares Cook. “In this role, I’m an advocate for not only our 8,000 Milliken associates, but also for the 12 million people who make up the U.S. manufacturing sector. I look forward to doing my part to ensure our industry’s continued growth and success.”
The NAM is a one-stop shop for manufacturers, telling the story of the industry and equipping members with invaluable resources through the NAM’s channels and partnerships with the Manufacturing Leadership Council, The Manufacturing Institute and the Innovation Research Interchange. The association and its members are at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers, with executives on the NAM Board serving as the driving force behind its efforts.
“Halsey is a recognized leader in our industry, and the NAM will be stronger thanks to his service on our Board of Directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “The NAM’s mission is to ensure we always keep moving forward, and Halsey will bring invaluable insights as we advocate for the men and women of our industry and advance the values that have made America’s manufacturing industry strong—free enterprise, competitiveness, individual liberty and equal opportunity.”
