FAIRFIELD, N.J. - The Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA) recently announced the results of elections for officers and members of the board of directors, with Steve Mathews of M&B Hangers named president-elect.
Mathews, who will assume the post in April, has been an active member of TCATA, having served on its Business Program Committee for the 2013 TCATA Annual Management & Educational Conference; as a board member from 2008 to 2010; Thursday Party Chair for the 2007 Annual Conference; and as Golf Chair for the 2006 Conference, the association says.
“TCATA has always been a special organization to me,” says Mathews. “As a child, I remember my dad (Stan Mathews) being very involved in the association, even serving as president. He always spoke of the value of the organization, including the business relationships and friendships that he formed. This has been the same for me since I became part of TCATA, and I am truly honored for the opportunity to serve as president.”
