The National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) announced the appointment of former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce Augustine “Auggie” Tantillo as the NCTO’s new president.  Mr. Tantillo brings more than 25 years of industry experience to his new role having previously served as Executive Director of the American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition (AMTAC), one of the organizations that recently merged with NCTO.  Tantillo replaces Cass Johnson, who previously served as President of NCTO since its inception in 2004.  The appointment of Mr. Tantillo is effective immediately.

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Auggie’s leadership and many years of experience to NCTO at such an important juncture of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations,” said Bill Jasper, Chairman of NCTO. “In his new role as president, Auggie will continue NCTO’s unparalleled commitment to fighting on behalf of American textile manufacturing and jobs at home and abroad.”

“We certainly wish Cass the very best in his future endeavors and remain grateful for his dedicated service over the years to our organization and the broader U.S. textile industry,” Jasper concluded.

Beyond AMTAC, Tantillo has held various positions during a Washington government relations career that has spanned twenty-five years.  In addition to his work in the private sector, he has also served as the Chief-of-Staff to former United States Senator, Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce for Textiles and Apparel. 

Cass Johnson served as President of NCTO since its inception in 2004.  Johnson began his career at the American Textile Manufacturers Institute in 1991, the predecessor of NCTO.  He served as the Assistant Director of Trade Policy until being named President of ATMI in 2002.
