Washington, D.C., October 23, 2017 – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) announced that Kirsten Lund-Jurgensen, Ph.D., executive vice president and president, Pfizer Global Supply, has been named to the NAM Board of Directors. Lund-Jurgensen will join the NAM Board to advance a manufacturing policy agenda that promotes growth and prosperity for all Americans.

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 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. More than 90 percent of our members are small and medium-sized businesses.

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 be a part of the NAM Board to advocate for policies that will ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers,” said Lund-Jurgensen. “I look forward to sharing how policies can create more possibilities for the men and women employed in manufacturing across the US and how manufacturers are strengthening our economy and creating opportunities for working families.”
“Kirsten is a true leader in our industry, and she will bring valuable insights to the NAM Board of Directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Kirsten knows what it takes to succeed in a changing global economy and the kinds of solutions, such as bold, comprehensive tax reform, we need to see from our elected leaders. With her voice and leadership, the NAM will be an even more effective advocate for our more than 14,000 members and for the industry that is the backbone of our country.”
