Dev Ahuja, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has been named to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) board of directors. Dev will join the NAM board to advance a manufacturing policy agenda that promotes growth and prosperity for all Americans.
The NAM is at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers. Executives on the NAM board, which comprises leaders representing companies of all sizes in every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s advocacy efforts.
“I am honored to join the NAM Board to advocate policies that will ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers,” said Dev. “Policymakers need to understand how their actions affect the more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. I look forward to sharing my story and my experiences – along with the stories of Novelis and all manufacturers – to strengthen our economy and create more opportunities for working families.”
“Dev is a recognized and respected leader in our industry, and he will bring valuable insights to the NAM board of directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Dev knows what it takes to succeed in a changing global economy and understands the kinds of solutions – like infrastructure investment, workforce development, immigration reform, trade expansion and regulatory relief – that we need to see from our elected leaders. With his voice and leadership, the NAM will be an even more effective advocate for our more than 12 million men and women who make things in America and for the industry that is the backbone of our exceptional country.”
Founded in 1895, the NAM is the largest industrial trade association in the United States (U.S.) and is the nation’s most influential advocate for manufacturing. The NAM’s membership includes some of the world’s most iconic brands and many of the small manufacturers that power the U.S. economy.
