Esteve to Lead Cotton Council International in 2017

Eduardo (Eddy) Esteve

 

Eduardo (Eddy) Esteve, a merchant from Dallas, TX, will serve as president of Cotton Council International (CCI) for 2017.

Esteve and other CCI officers were elected at the organization’s board meeting during the National Cotton Council’s (NCC) 2017 Annual Meeting in Dallas. CCI is the NCC’s export promotion arm and carries out programs in more than 50 countries globally under the COTTON USA trademark.

“U.S. cotton has a great story to tell, and COTTON USA is communicating it to our industry’s current and potential customers worldwide,” Esteve said. “As CCI’s president, I’m proud to lead its efforts this year to continue driving differentiation and branding of U.S. cotton throughout the global cotton supply chain.”

Esteve succeeds Keith Lucas, a Garner, NC, cooperative official, who becomes CCI board chairman.

Esteve was born in Mexico City but spent his childhood in Dallas and graduated from the University of Dallas in 1990. He began working for ECOM USA and merchandised coffee in Mexico for seven years before transferring to the firm’s cotton division in 1997. He now serves as ECOM USA’s president.
