As part of the merger reorganization, several NAPED members will serve on the NAUMD executive committee and board of directors to ensure a smooth transition for the membership and take an active role supporting the needs of the public safety membership.

Eldon Griggs, vice president of business development for GALLS, currently serves on both NAUMD executive committee and NAPED boards and will remain on the NAUMD executive committee.

Tim Brown, chief operations officer of GT Distributors and former president of NAPED and James Witmer, chief executive officer of Witmer Public Safety Group Inc. and current president of NAPED, will join the NAUMD board of directors.

NAUMD was has been the voice of the uniform industry since 1932. It is composed of manufacturers, distributors and associated companies that have a common bond. NAPED was created by bringing together law enforcement distributors, industry professionals and manufacturers to form a network for the purpose of mutually sharing the vast amounts of market experience, resources and product knowledge comprised within its membership.
