Ed Gribbin, president of Alvanon, Inc. has been named to the board of the American Apparel & Footwear Association. The announcement was made by AAFA President & CEO Kevin M. Burke at the AAFA Board of Directors Meeting, in conjunction with the AAFA Annual Executive Summit, March 13, 2013, Washington, D.C.

Gribbin’s appointment to the AAFA board reflects his 35 years of experience in the apparel industry, his global business background and his broad ranging involvement with worldwide apparel associations.  He is co-inventor of the Intellifit Body Scanner and a member of eight leading institutions, including The Fashion Group International, the International Apparel Federation and the International Association of Clothing Designers and Executives. He is also a member of the Fashion & Apparel Studies Advisory Board of the University of Delaware.

“As an AAFA board member, I will be supporting and contributing to AAFA’s mission to represent the interests of U.S.  apparel retailers, brands and manufacturers,” Gribbin says, adding that Alvanon, while only twelve years old is now working with the apparel industry in over 87 countries around the world. “Because of our broad, global industry reach, and our role in global supply chains, we have a unique perspective that I hope will allow me to add value to the AAFA Board and our members. And, because I have personally worked in just about every industry segment --- wholesale, retail, manufacturing and now as a supplier and consultant to the industry, I think I have a clear understanding of what AAFA member companies need and want from their association.”

Gribbin was selected to introduce AAFA President Burke’s Opening Remarks at the AAFA’s Annual Executive Summit March 14 General Session. Gribbin’s comments focused on the positive changes to AAFA during Kevin’s tenure, including growth in its membership base, its member programs, its financial position, and its standing and influence on Capitol Hill.
