WASHINGTON — Kevin Burke, who has headed the American Apparel & Footwear Association for 12 years, ushering the group through the policies of two presidents, the enactment of several free-trade agreements and a change in the global sourcing paradigm that has sparked a mini revival in domestic manufacturing, is stepping down from the trade and lobbying group next month.
Burke, president and chief executive officer of AAFA, is leaving on Jan. 21 to become president and ceo of the Airports Council International-North America.
