FTA has announced today the appointment of Darrell Doren as the new Managing Director of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), the flagship initiative created by FTA to support companies in improving working conditions in sourcing factories and farms worldwide.
Mr. Doren will take over from Lorenz Berzau, whose role has been crucial to the launch and successful development of the BSCI initiative. Mr. Doren brings on board significant experience within the world of corporate sustainability, most recently as the Hong Kong based Global EHS & Global Social Compliance Director for Avery Dennison, a US-based global manufacturer and distributor of pressure-sensitive adhesive materials, apparel branding labels and tags.
Christian Ewert, FTA Director General, thanked Mr. Berzau for his professional dedication and commitment to BSCI, which have been a key ingredient in the initiative's growth to over 1,500 participants during the last decade, and welcomed Mr. Doren to the organisation: "He brings a wealth of expertise and his direct experience in the global supply chain -particularly in one of the top sourcing countries for BSCI participants- will boost the initiative".
