Michael Campbell, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Arch Chemicals Inc. in Norwalk, Conn., began his two-year term on January 1, 2009, as chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the nation's largest industrial trade association. Campbell was elected chairman at the NAM's semi-annual Board of Directors meeting in October 2008. He succeeds Charles E. Bunch, chairman and chief executive officer, PPG Industries, Inc. in this voluntary position.

“As NAM chairman, I look forward to working with President-elect Obama, his Administration and the new Congress to help America's manufacturers remain a vital engine of growth and prosperity,” Campbell said. “With the right policies and legislation in place, U.S. industry can continue to lead the world in manufacturing productivity, innovation and output. This is central to our belief that manufacturing should be a significant part of the economic recovery,” he said.

“Given the serious economic challenges facing manufacturers and our nation, the NAM is very encouraged by the focused effort of President-elect Obama and the new Congress to craft an economic recovery plan,” Campbell continued. “There is no doubt that the global financial crisis has created great economic uncertainty for manufacturers. My priorities as chairman of the NAM reflect the critical need to promote capital investment and job creation,” he said.

“For the short-term, it is important to act as quickly as possible to jumpstart our nation's economy and create jobs though an economic stimulus plan that preserves and enhances America's global competitiveness. For the long-term, we must all work together to create a sustainable, growing economy and address America's most critical competitive challenges -- from producing more affordable, reliable energy and reducing the corporate tax burden to modernizing our health care system and promoting export growth,” Campbell said.

Campbell, a native of Portsmouth, N.H., has led Arch Chemicals since the company's inception in 1999. He previously served as Olin Corp.'s executive vice president and president of Olin Microelectronic Materials. Campbell received a bachelor's degree from the University of New Hampshire. Following service as a U.S. Naval officer, he earned a Juris Doctor degree from George Washington University. Campbell serves on the boards of directors of MeadWestvaco Corporation and Milliken & Company.

Arch Chemicals is a global chemical company with approximately $1.5 billion in annual sales. The company and its subsidiaries employ 3,000 people and hold leadership positions in biocides, water products, wood protection, personal care ingredients and coatings.
