Has been with KAM since 1994
FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 4, 2017) — Greg Higdon, president and CEO of the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM), has announced plans to retire. He will continue to serve until an orderly transition is complete.
Higdon, a Brescia College graduate, served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, he spent 10 years in the Kentucky Senate and also served as deputy secretary of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet and as a special assistant to the Governor’s Office.
Higdon has been an integral part of KAM since 1994, when he joined the governmental affairs team representing KAM, and was named president and CEO in December 2009.
Under Higdon’s leadership, KAM has become laser-focused on meeting the needs of Kentucky manufacturers, using regional executive briefings to take the pulse of manufacturers statewide. When energy became a hot topic, KAM instituted an energy conference, aimed at giving manufacturers answers and real-time examples of cost-saving options and initiatives to boost their bottom lines.
