WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on the passing of former NAM Board Chair, Calvin “Tink” Campbell:
“I am saddened to relay the news of the passing of our good friend and former chairman of the NAM Board of Directors, Calvin ‘Tink’ Campbell. On behalf of the NAM, I send our deepest condolences to all of Tink’s family and loved ones.
“Beyond his leadership at Goodman Equipment Corporation, Tink was committed to advancing the cause of manufacturing in the United States. Tink was an impressive leader and mentor to many of his former employees and colleagues. As former chairman of both the NAM and the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association, Tink gave generously of his time and energy to work selflessly to expand opportunity for all. He also had the distinction of being the NAM’s first smaller-sized manufacturer to be elected to the NAM’s Board in decades, marking a change in course for how the NAM represented its vast membership.
“Manufacturing in America is stronger today due to Tink’s work. Countless lives have been changed for the better in Illinois and across the country, thanks to his support of our industry and his community. He will be missed by all.”
