The National Association of Manufacturers announced that Celeste Mastin, president and CEO of H.B. Fuller, has been named to the NAM Board of Directors. Mastin will join the NAM Board to bolster the association’s leadership in policy advocacy, legal action, workforce solutions, operational excellence and news and insights. She will help the industry advance a manufacturing competitiveness agenda that promotes opportunity and prosperity.
Founded in 1895, the NAM, guided by its Board of Directors, is the largest industrial trade association in the United States, with more than 14,000 members. The NAM is place for manufacturers to gain and share knowledge, telling the story of the industry and equipping them with invaluable resources through news and insights channels, as well as partnerships with the Manufacturing Leadership Council, the Manufacturing Institute, and the Innovation Research Interchange.
“I am honored to be a part of the NAM Board and look forward to working with my colleagues across the industry to advocate policies that support the long-term success of manufacturers across the country and create opportunities for all,” said Mastin.
“Celeste is committed to the success of our industry, and the NAM will be stronger thanks to her service on our Board of Directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Celeste will be a partner in the NAM’s efforts to advance a competitiveness agenda that amplifies manufacturers’ efforts to create well-paying jobs and grow our economy. We will work with policymakers to fix our nation’s outdated permitting process, expand trade opportunities with our allies, build on the 2017 tax reforms and challenge the regulatory onslaught impacting manufacturers’ ability to invest in America. I look forward to working together as advocates for manufacturing in the U.S. and to advance the values that have made America exceptional and our industry strong—free enterprise, competitiveness, individual liberty, and equal opportunity.”
