Logo: The Institute of Makers of Explosives (IME)The Institute of Makers of Explosives (IME) selected Clark Mica as its next president.

Mica was previously the president of government affairs at the Fertilizer Institute.

I am honored to have been chosen to lead the IME, the premier trade association promoting safety and security for the commercial explosives industry, Mica says. I look forward to leading the talented IME team and working with our members to elevate our industry’s presence in Washington, D.C., and advocate for public policy outcomes that provide a strong business environment for the commercial explosives industry.

From the iPhone to the granite countertops in your kitchen to the copper wire in your home, all of the necessary materials to make these products were made possible by the safe and secure use of explosives, Mica adds. I am excited to get out and tell the great story about the positive impact that our industry has on everyday life.

Mica brings two decades of experience in Washington, D.C., working in both the public and private sectors.

Clark’s experience will be a welcome addition to IME as we focus on building strong partnerships in Washington, D.C., as well as expanding IME’s relationships with coalitions dealing with like-minded regulatory and legislative issues, says Ralph Hymer, IME board chair and COO of Nelson Brothers.
