Liveris Named by President Obama as Co-Chair of Advanced Manufacturing Partnership
Andrew N. Liveris, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Dow Chemical Company and a member of Leadership 100, was appointed in June by U.S. President Barack Obama as Co-chair of the newly formed Advanced Manufacturing Partnership. Liveris will be joined by Susan Hockfield, President of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in heading the Partnership.
The Partnership includes other major U.S. manufacturers, several top U.S. engineering universities, and key government technology leaders. Key goals of the Partnership will be to build a roadmap for advanced manufacturing technologies, accelerating ideas from the drawing board to production and competitive advantage in the marketplace, and to ensure a vital and globally competitive manufacturing sector.

Last July, Liveris launched Dow's Advanced Manufacturing Plan for America (AMP). AMP calls for action on a number of fronts to lower structural costs that are hindering U.S. manufacturing, and to establish a policy framework that will enable economic growth. In January, Liveris published Make It In America: The Case for Re-Inventing the Economy, which articulates AMP in detail.

Liveris' 35-year Dow career has spanned manufacturing, engineering, sales, marketing, and business and general management. He has been a member of Dow's Board of Directors and CEO since 2004, and was elected as Chairman of the Board in 2006. Liveris serves on the Board of Directors of IBM, and he is president of the International Council of Chemical Associations, Vice Chairman of the Business Council, and a member of the Executive Committee of the Business Roundtable. Liveris is also a member of the President's Export Council, the US-India CEO Forum, the Peterson Institute for International Economics, the American Australian Association, and a Trustee of Tufts University.
