Washinigton Outlook

James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent

Johnson Named Interim President of ATMICass Johnson, a highly regarded international trade expert, has been named interim president of the American Textile Manufacturers Institute (ATMI), replacing Parks Shackelford who resigned to take a position with a sugar manufacturer. Johnson joined ATMI in 1991 as assistant director of international trade. He was promoted to senior vice president in March of 2003. Johnson has traveled throughout the world as an adviser to the US government during international trade negotiations and has worked closely on the industrys behalf with government trade authorities in Washington.At the same time, ATMI promoted Robert Dupree to vice president, governmental affairs, and Patty Adair to vice president, textile product services and standards. Johnsons interim appointment is a reflection of ATMIs uncertain future, which could include a merger with one or more other textile trade associations. ATMI Chairman Willis C. Moore III, vice president for governmental and investor relations for Unifi, Inc., told Textile World that ATMI is looking at all options with respect to staffing and other considerations. He emphasized that the primary goal is to help the textile industry speak with a united voice in Washington.By James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent September 2003
