Bakane has lead a rich three decade career in the textile industry serving as CFO and CEO of Cone Mills Corporation and Cone Denim prior to assuming leadership of Frontier Spinning Mills. Bakane’s role on the Bank’s Advisory Committee will be to provide recommendations on export financing products to the Ex-Im Board of Directors and the Bank President, Fred Hochberg.
NCTO President, Cass Johnson applauded the Ex-Im Bank for selecting Bakane to the Advisory Committee. “I am pleased that the Ex-Im Board of Directors selected Frontier Spinning Mills CEO John Bakane to serve on the Bank’s Advisory Committee. Bakane has a strong background in finance and has lead U.S. companies like Cone Denim into international prominence.”
Johnson continued, “The U.S. textile industry exports 75 percent of its production, and as industry exports increase creative export financing arrangements will become more and more necessary, and the textile industry will greatly benefit from Bakane’s service as part of the Advisory Committee.”
NCTO was instrumental in working with Congress, specifically Representative Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) and Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) in creating a position for the U.S. textile industry on the Bank’s Advisory Committee. “NCTO applauds Rep. Westmoreland and Sen. Hagan for recognizing the need for this important position on the Advisory Committee, and we thank both leaders for working with the industry to ensure its creation.” Johnson stated.
