Switzerland-based Bluesign technologies AG founded in 2000, and developer of the bluesign system, which is adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers, has announced that the company's Board of Directors has appointed Jill Dumain as the new CEO, effective January 2017, to succeed Peter Waeber who will retire at the end of the year.

Jill Dumain has held various senior positions at Patagonia Inc, Ventura CA, US, for over 27 years and her tenure at Patagonia Inc. spanned positions in textile research and development to her current role as Director of Environmental Strategy. Her projects have included the transition to organic cotton, The Common Threads Recycling Program, The Footprint Chronicles, and the introduction of bluesign tools and systems at Patagonia. Jill has held leadership and board positions at the Organic Exchange, Textile Exchange and the Sustainability Working Group at the Outdoor Industry Association. Jill has been chairman of bluesign technologies' Advisory Board from 2011 representing brands. Throughout her career at Patagonia, Jill travelled extensively giving her a chance to interface with other companies throughout the supply chain committed to environmental responsibility.

Richard Shentu, bluesign technologies' chairman and SGS' executive vice president consumer and retail services said, “Jill Dumain has been a strong advocate and supporter of bluesign from its early days and a member of the Advisory Board since 2011. Her qualifications, extensive industry experience and her proven success in coaching and motivating teams to achieve company objectives make her the ideal person to lead the further development and expansion of Bluesign.”

Dumain said, “I'm honoured and grateful to the bluesign board for the opportunity to lead this exceptional organisation of innovative, dedicated, and talented professionals. Bluesign technologies' passion for creating innovative textile processes to reduce environmental impact is a perfect synergy with my experience and passion. This is a terrific opportunity that any leader would welcome. I am also thankful and indebted to Patagonia for providing me the incredible years there and the foundation allowing me to take this next step. (GK)
