Thodis, president and CEO of the Michigan Manufacturers Association, has represented the interests of 4,000 busi- nesses and corporations throughout the state, which collectively employ 90 percent of Michigan's industrial work force. In doing so, he has contributed to the economic and social well-being of the state. Manufacturing currently employs almost one million workers and accounts for $55.7 billion (more than 25 percent) of Michigan's gross state product. Since 1991, manufacturing has created more than 70,000 new jobs in the state — helping to drive Michigan's renaissance. "The state of Michigan congratulates John G. Thodis for serving the interests of manufacturers in Michigan for 25 years," Michigan Gov. John Engle recently said. "MMA is fortunate to have someone with his experience at the helm." Thodis began his work at MMA on Sept. 18,1972, as director of government affairs. Five years later, he was named president and chief executive officer. He is a member of the MMA Board of Directors, as well as vice chairman and CEO of the MMA Service Corporation—a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Michigan Manufacturers Association. Prior to joining MMA, he was acting director and chief deputy director of the Michigan Department of Labor for six years under Governors George Romney and William Milliken. Thodis was born and raised in Salina. His parents operated the A&G Cafe in downtown Salina.
