Techtextil North America is proud to announce that Jeremy Litchfield, Founder/Chief Pacesetter of Atayne, will deliver the 2011 Keynote Address. Litchfield was chosen in an effort to highlight the high performance apparel and sporting industries as well as sustainability issues, which in Techtextil speak translates to the Clothtech, Oekotech and Sporttech application areas.

Techtextil North America
Mandalay Bay Convention Center
March 15 – 17, 2011

The address will be geared as a motivational talk on the subject of innovative ideas that may change the basic structure of the textile industry as we know it today. The goal is to initiate introspective thought processes towards what those involved in any aspect of the textile industry - from supplier to end user - can do to make their products and companies more environmentally friendly.

Jeremy Litchfield
Litchfield launched Atayne in May 2007 to inspire positive environmental and social change through the power of active lifestyles. Atayne leverages groundbreaking technologies and uses “trash” (e.g. plastic bottles, coconut shells, crab shells, old garments) to design high performance outdoor and athletic apparel.

Prior to starting Atayne, Litchfield's professional experience centered on brand strategy, consumer insights, and growing brands through non-traditional channels. He served as the Director of Brand Strategy and Consumer Insights at RedPeg Marketing and Operations Manager at Pierce Promotions. His brand experience cuts across a variety of categories and includes large and small brands such as Gillette Venus, Dove, Pepperidge Farm, Diet Pepsi, Drambuie, Zyrtec, and The I Do Foundation.

Outside of work Jeremy enjoys an active, outdoor lifestyle and works endlessly to promote sustainable living. Jeremy is the Founder and on the steering committee of the Maine Advanced Textile Technology Consortium. Additionally, he sits on the Advisory Board of the Foundation for Renewable Energy Education.
