Jason L. Brown (pictured), vice president, general counsel of GE Appliances (GEA), a Haier company, has been named to The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Board of Directors. Brown joins the NAM Board to bolster the association’s leadership in policy advocacy, workforce solutions, legal action, operational excellence and news and insights. He will help the industry advance an agenda that promotes opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.
“I am honoured to be a part of the NAM Board and continue to fight for policies that will ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers,” said Brown. “It is critical for lawmakers to understand how their policies affect the more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. The past 18 months have been some of the most challenging and rewarding of my career. I look forward to representing GE Appliances and sharing the work we are doing in Louisville and around the country to strengthen U.S. manufacturing, and to giving a voice to the 15,000 men and women who work each day to make and deliver the appliances that make our homes better.”
Brown joined GE Appliances in November of 2018, bringing 20 years of legal experience in consumer product manufacturing. He has been invaluable in helping the company increase its U.S. presence, navigate the challenges of the pandemic, lead enterprise risk management, and expand its focus on sustainability and citizenship. A staunch believer in the power of education and inspiring the next generation of leaders, Brown is the board chair for Chicago’s Legal Prep Charter Academy and serves on the board for The Jefferson Community and Technical College Foundation in Louisville. He also serves on the global board of directors for the Association of Corporate Counsel, a global organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations, nonprofits and other private-sector organisations.
