He has been with the organisation since 1999 and elected first time president in November 2016 for US National Section.

He has more than 25 years of working experience in the knitting industry and has worked in a senior techno-management position in global multinational companies in USA, Canada, Italy and North India. “Moreover, the number of USA and Canada national sections members are gradually increasing due to his presence in the organisation,” the organisation says. “We believe that, with his familiarity with knitting sector in a wide North America perspective, he will be a great asset to IFKT.”

The International Federation of Knitting Technologists was founded in 1956. It was conceived to “establish friendly ties between works managers, technicians and knitting specialists from different countries and thus promote the general interests of the knitting industry and its further technical development”.

The organisation holds annual conferences, termed International Congress, since 1958, with the first one dating back to 1956. Countries that organised International Congresses so far are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain, France, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the US.

Today, the International Federation of Knitting Technologists has representation in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia and Switzerland. In addition, there are individual members in Canada, Egypt and Taiwan.
