The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has appointed Mary Hennessy as its interim executive vice president effective immediately.

This follows the announcement by IFAI Board Chairman Peter McKernan on 24 Oct. that President/CEO Stephen Warner is stepping down from his post.

Hennessy has been with IFAI for 23 years, and most recently held the position of vice president of communications and publisher of IFAI's seven industry magazines. Susan Niemi, formerly the associate publisher, will now step into the publisher position left vacant by Hennessy.

Said Hennessy, "IFAI stands as the voice of the specialty fabrics industry as it approaches its 100-year anniversary. I am honored to be a part of the continuation of this great association."

The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) is a not-for-profit trade association comprised of member companies representing the international specialty fabrics marketplace. Member companies range in size from one-person shops to multinational corporations.
