ICTA Chooses New Exec|
October 21, 2013
A new executive director of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets has been hired by its board of directors to replace Eloise Ullman, who had held the position for 23 years.
Kathy J. McFadden was slated to take full charge Nov. 1 following a one month transition working with Ullman in the organization’s Maryland office.
She brings prior executive director experience as well as experience as an entrepreneur.
In her most recent position, McFadden was founder in 2003 and president 2003-2013 of Pivotal Edge, Inc., which does business as Fashion Fit Formula, which helps women buy clothes that fit.
Prior to that she was executive vice president 1989-2003 of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Metropolitan Washington and executive director 1985-1989 of the Mechanical Contractors of Kansas.
“ICTA is delighted that Kathy has accepted the position of executive director and we look forward to working with her to expand the scope and improve the effectiveness of the Industry Council,” said Robert J. Greenstein, ICTA chairman and Manager, U.S. Coins at Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. in Chicago.
He added that ICTA had received more than 70 applications for the position.
“I look forward to the challenge of growing the size and importance of ICTA as the leading voice for the rare coin and bullion industry,” said McFadden. “I welcome the opportunity to combine my previous experiences as a business owner and an association executive into making ICTA even more successful in the years ahead.”
ICTA is the voice of the numismatic community in Washington, D.C., and in state capitals, handling taxation and regulatory issues that affect collectors and dealers.
“Kathy is the embodiment of what the search committee wanted, a seasoned association executive, used to working with and representing independent-minded businesses,” said Harry Miller, ICTA vice chairman and president of Miller’s Mint in Patchogue, N.Y.
