DuPont named Barry M. Granger as vice president and general manager of Government Marketing and Government Affairs, effective July 1. Building on DuPont's 207-year history of serving the U.S. government, Granger will be responsible for accelerating business growth in the public sector -- with a focus on the U.S. economic stimulus package and other policy programs. In addition, he will continue forging the strong relationship with government leaders and the company.

"Through our science and innovation capabilities, DuPont offers many solutions that address the nation's challenges during this transformational period," said Linda J. Fisher, DuPont vice president and Chief Sustainability Officer. "Barry will be instrumental in understanding the federal government's emerging needs and how DuPont can meet those needs with our innovations. Barry's broad business and marketing experiences provide a solid foundation in leading our Government Marketing strategy and execution and Government Affairs organization."

Granger, 49, currently vice president and general manager for DuPont Nonwovens, has served in a number of business and marketing leadership assignments since joining the company in 1987. Following several strategic marketing roles, Granger was appointed in 2002 as vice president and general manager of DuPont Imaging Technologies, which includes governments among its customers. In 2007, Granger was named vice president and general manager for Nonwovens, which provides selective barrier materials to global markets including the U.S. government. His successor will be named later. Granger will relocate from Wilmington, Del., to Washington, D.C.

Through its innovations, DuPont has a long tradition of serving the U.S. government. Founder E.I. du Pont started the company in 1802 at the urging of Thomas Jefferson, who advised him of the new American nation's need of a domestic supply of high-quality gunpowder. Since then, DuPont has worked closely with the U.S. government to help protect the military, first responders, firefighters and law enforcement. DuPont offers a wide range of proven, science-based products and services, including some of the best-known brands in government and industry - DuPont(TM) Nomex(R) fiber for thermal hazards; Kevlar(R) fiber for ballistic and stab, cut and abrasion protection; Tychem(R) garments for chemical and gas hazards, and; Tyvek(R) garments for dry particulate protection. In addition, the company provides safety and preparedness expertise and training for first responders, HAZMAT teams and industrial operators. Many DuPont products are available via U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and other government schedules.

DuPont is a science company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.
