National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) pays tribute to Paul O’Day, President of the American Fiber Manufacturing Association (AFMA) since 1984, who died on June 1 at the age of 82. O'Day was a strategic thinker who safeguarded the US fibre industry’s interests in Washington during very tumultuous times, said NCTO chairman William V. McCrary Jr.

"It is a sad day for the US textile industry. I’ve been proud to call a Paul friend for decades and worked with him closely during my two-year stint as AFMA chairman," added McCrary. "Many important policy issues arose during Paul's three decades as president at AFMA that would not have been resolved favourably without his wise counsel and resolute, steady leadership."

NCTO President and CEO Auggie Tantillo, who worked directly with O’Day since the early 1980s said, "For 33 years, Paul O’Day exhibited an unmatched dedication to AFMA and the industry he loved."

"Paul represented his constituency with a style and level of decorum virtually unheard of in the current Washington environment. Famously courteous and humble, Paul won heated policy debates through the power of his extraordinary intellect, his expansive institutional knowledge and his total command of the subject matter at hand. Completely secure in his role and the critical contribution he made to every project, Paul was always quick to defer credit and to shower praise on his colleagues," Tantillo added.

"Fibre manufacturers and the US textile industry lost a priceless asset who will be greatly and deservedly missed," concluded Tantillo. (KD)
