Charles Myers retires as LIA president

30 January 2005

Charles Myers has retired as president of Leather Industries of America (LIA) and management has passed to the LIA's long-term legal counsel, Collier/Shannon and will be administered by John Wittenborn, LIA's environmental counsel. As a result Myers has been succeeded by John Wittenborn as president and the Washington headquarters of LIA will be moving to the Collier/Shannon offices where select staff will continue to serve members in the areas of trade shows, statistics, laboratory support and continued dialogue with several government agencies. In addition, John Wittenborn will continue his close collaboration with Dr Nick Cory, the technical director at the industry's flagship Leather Research Laboratory. 'Charlie' is a well known and popular figure in the industry and his wit and pithy comments will be greatly missed.
