The Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), the premiere
advocacy voice for rare coin and bullion dealers, announced
Wednesday, October 23, 2013, that Kathy J. McFadden will become its
new Executive Director. McFadden started on October 1 and will

long-time leader, Eloise Ullman, who is retiring.
"ICTA is delighted that Kathy has accepted the position of
executive director and we look forward to working with her to
expand the scope and improve the effectiveness of the Industry
Council," said Robert J. Greenstein, ICTA Chair and Manager, U.S.
Coins at Harlan J. Berk, LTD in Chicago. "We received more
than 70 applications for the executive director position and a
number of them were quite impressive. In the end, Kathy stood
out above all the other candidates."
Kathy J. McFadden is a seasoned association executive manager,
having spent 18 years leading two different regional
associations of mechanical contractors. For the last decade,
she has been President of Pivotal Edge, Inc., a business she
founded and grew internationally through both the Internet and

"I look forward to the challenge of growing the size and
importance of ICTA as the leading voice for the rare coin and
bullion industry," said McFadden. "I welcome the opportunity
to combine my previous experiences as a business owner and
an association executive into making ICTA even more successful
in the years ahead."
