AAFA is a national trade association representing apparel, footwear and other sewn products companies and their suppliers.

As global sales and technical director Softlines at TÜV SÜD, DeVito assists manufacturers and retailers to comply with global regulations and to implement QA and compliance programs.

“I look forward to supporting the AAFA in its mission to improve product safety for our consumers and also represent the industry on important safety issues,” Ben DeVito also said.

Devito's role will be to serve the committee and support the chairman by advancing the AAFA's agenda.
