The American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) said Wednesday that Juanita Duggan, its current president and CEO would leave her post.
Duggan will stay on for the remainder of the year before departing for a “new role.” The AAFA board of directors said it’s working on a leadership transition plan.
“When we brought Juanita on, we knew that she was a dynamic leader with deep Washington insight which is why we selected her to chart a new course for AAFA and that’s what she has done,” AAFA chairman Rick Helfenbein said. “Under her leadership, we have garnered important legislative wins in trade, raised the profile of the organization, and put a new architecture in place that sets AAFA up for future success.”
