WASHINGTON – The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) today announced a slate of changes to its board of directors. Illinois manufacturing executive Zach Mottl will assume the role of chair of the CPA board, replacing previous chair Dan DiMicco. DiMicco and CPA board member Marc Fasteau will become the group’s new co-vice chairs. Additionally, manufacturing veterans Bill Jones and Marty Davis will join the CPA board.
“This is a tremendous honor for me,” said Mottl, Chief Alignment Officer at Atlas Tool Works in Lyons, Illinois. “I’m the fourth generation of a family-owned manufacturing business. I’ve grown up knowing how incredibly important manufacturing is for everything from community jobs to national security. I look forward to bringing all of my experience to bear on CPA’s work in support of an industrial resurgence in the United States.”
Mottl has previously served as chairman of the Technology and Manufacturing Association (TMA) and has also served on the board of the Illinois Military Economic Development Committee. From 2015-2016, Mottl served as a manufacturing council member for the U.S. Department of Commerce.
In a shift for CPA’s board, former chairman and CEO of Nucor Corporation Dan DiMicco and American Strategic Insurance Group founder and former chairman Marc Fasteau will serve as the organization’s new vice chairs. DiMicco currently serves on the board of directors of Duke Energy. He has also served on the United States Manufacturing Council as well as the boards of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the World Steel Association (WSA). Fasteau was a managing director and partner at Dillon, Read & Co., and has served on professional staffs in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Fasteau also serves on the Economic Advisory Committee of the Center for American Progress.
Both DiMicco and Fasteau congratulate Mottl on his new leadership role and look forward to working with him. Said DiMicco, “CPA has made incredible strides over the past few years, pressing the case for tariffs, currency realignment, and penalties against China’s predatory trade practices. I’m pleased to see Zach Mottl assume the role of CPA chair. His lengthy manufacturing experience will be a great boon for CPA as it continues to expand its national profile.”
CPA’s board of directors has long brought together some of the nation’s most experienced and accomplished manufacturers and agricultural producers. Joining the board in 2021 are Bill Jones, former CEO of Cummins-Allison, and Marty Davis, president and CEO of Cambria. Jones was the third-generation CEO of Cummins, the leading U.S.-based provider of currency processing products. Under Davis’ leadership, Cambria has become the top American-made, family-owned producer of natural quartz surfaces.
