Mr. José Sette of Brazil has been chosen by Member Governments to serve as the next executive director of the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC). Mr. Sette was chosen after a rigorous, merit-based search involving interviews via Skype and face-to-face with a selection committee composed of diplomats from 21 countries.

Mr. Sette will begin his duties on January 1, 2014. He will join the Secretariat in Cartagena, Colombia at the 72nd Plenary Meeting at the end of September 2013, and he will come to Washington in November 2013 to take up residence and overlap with the current executive director for six weeks, thus ensuring a smooth transition.

Mr. Sette was executive director ad interim of the International Coffee Organization, a sister organization to the ICAC, from November 2010 to November 2011. He was Head of Operations for the ICO from November 2007 to the end of December 2012.

He has worked as a consultant to trade associations, specializing in international trade matters, and he has worked with state trade associations in Brazil and with coffee exporters. He has also worked previously in Washington, DC for the Inter-American Development Bank. He has a MBA with a major in finance from American University in Washington, DC. He speaks English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.

Mr. José Sette will be the sixth executive director in the history of the ICAC Secretariat since 1947, following Mr. R. Whitaker, May 1947–Mar 1949; Mr. Robert Evans, Apr 1949–Feb 1963; Dr. J. C. Santley, Mar 1963–Dec 1986; Dr. Lawrence. H. Shaw, Jan 1987–Dec 1998; and Dr. Terry P. Townsend, Jan 1999–Dec 2013.
