The U.S. National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) announced that Jason L. Brown, vice president, general counsel of GE Appliances, has been named to the NAM Board of Directors. Brown joins the NAM Board to bolster the association’s leadership in policy advocacy, workforce solutions, legal action, operational excellence and news and insights. “I am honored to be a part of the NAM Board and continue to fight for policies that will ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers – said Brown -. It is critical for lawmakers to understand how their policies affect the more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. The past 18 months have been some of the most challenging and rewarding of my career. I look forward to representing GE Appliances and sharing the work we are doing in Louisville and around the country to strengthen U.S. manufacturing, and to giving a voice to the 15,000 men and women who work each day to make and deliver the appliances that make our homes better”.
