Jan '07
Bill Crawford has submitted his resignation from the Memphis-based Cotton Board, effective January 31, 2007. Crawford joined the Cotton Board staff in 1984 and served as the organization's chief executive for the last 17 years.

During his tenure as President and CEO, the Cotton Board administered the Cotton Research & Promotion Program which funds programs to increase domestic consumer demand for cotton, creates farm and textile-related products and develops processes and technological innovations for the cotton industry.

“On behalf of the Cotton Board and the Cotton Research & Promotion Program, we want to thank Bill for his dedicated service over the past 22 years and wish him every success in his future endeavors,” states Nancy Marino, Chairman of the Cotton Board.

An executive search committee has been appointed by the Board's Executive Committee to guide a nationwide search for a new chief executive. The search committee is comprised of producer representatives from each of the growing regions of the Cotton Belt and one importer representative.

Search committee members include: Aaron Barcellos, CA; Thomas “Tap” Parker, LA; H.A. “Allen” McLaurin, NC; Kenneth Dierschke, TX; and importer representative Peter McGrath with J.C. Penny. Chairman Marino will also serve in an ex-officio capacity. Bud Skorupa, Cotton Board vice president of Finance/Administration has been appointed as the interim CEO.
