Washington, D.C. – Today, the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) announced the departure of James Wilkinson, Vice President for Strategy and Growth. Wilkinson headed NFTC’s business development efforts, including marketing, communications and membership growth. In addition, Wilkinson coordinated with the Board of Directors, organized the NFTC Foundation’s annual World Trade Dinner and led the promotional activities and events surrounding the organization’s 100th anniversary last year. 

“I want to thank James for his leadership and contributions to NFTC over these last couple of years – most notably, for his role in heading the centennial celebratory activities for the NFTC Foundation,” said NFTC President Bill Reinsch. “James has been an invaluable addition to our staff, and he will be greatly missed.” 

Wilkinson joined NFTC in April 2013 after serving as Executive Director of the Washington International Trade Association since 2003. His last day at the NFTC will be Friday, October 30.  

“I have enjoyed the time I’ve spent with NFTC. I am proud to have been a part of the centennial celebration, a milestone in the organization’s impressive history,” said Wilkinson. “I turn now to my next adventure, leading a growing, nationwide professional society in the medical field. I look forward to serving the members there, while pushing myself professionally in my new capacity.”
