The board of the International Apparel Federation (IAF), based in Zeist (Netherlands) has strengthened its organizational structure via following appointments:

- Mr. Matthijs Crietee was nominated as deputy secretary general of IAF.

Nadia van Staden is returning to IAF, where she worked in the PR and Communications department from 2007 to 2009.

IAF President Harry van Dalfsen was very satisfied with these decisions by the board. “On our way to building a strong and independent secretariat, these nominations give IAF more strength and expertise to improve the value added to our members”, he said. “Together with our secretary general Han Bekke and supported by the board, this new IAF team can implement our new business plan that was adopted last year in our meeting in Frankfurt (Germany)”, he added.
