Kevin J. Cosgriff, President and CEO of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), will retire from NEMA at the end of 2021. During his seven years leading NEMA, Mr. Cosgriff strengthened the electrical equipment and medical imaging industries by modernizing NEMA industry Standards processes, expanding market analytical offerings, and overseeing focused and effective advocacy.

“It has been a privilege to serve such an exceptional and nationally important group of Member companies and lead a truly wonderful team,” said Cosgriff. “I was fortunate to have an engaged and dedicated Board of Governors, expert company representatives and a creative and entrepreneurial staff of professionals. I am especially proud of our employees for their energy and willingness to try new things. As NEMA closes in on its hundredth anniversary, the association is poised for an equally bright and electrified second century.”

“On behalf of the entire NEMA Board of Governors past and present, I would like to thank Kevin for his outstanding leadership, unwavering commitment to our industries, and his many important achievements,” said NEMA Board Chair Annette Clayton, President and CEO of Schneider Electric. “His strong leadership will serve us incredibly well for the opportunities ahead; including greater electrification of our society, digitalized and connected devices of all types, and advanced manufacturing informed by data analysis and machine learning.”
