HOUSTON — One World Holdings has appointed Wilma Delaney, former VP of federal, state and provincial governmental and regulatory affairs for Dow Chemical, to its board of directors.
"We are very pleased to welcome Wilma to the One World board," said Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings. "Wilma brings deep expertise in corporate governance and global market expansion that will prove invaluable as One World continues its growth trajectory."
Wilma Delaney worked for Dow Chemical Company from 1975 until 2002, when she retired. While with Dow Chemical, she held multiple leadership positions. As head of the central office in Washington, D.C., for 10 years, she managed the activities of more than 50 lobbyists and other government and regulatory affairs professionals for all of North America and the territories. Delaney also managed all advocacy initiatives and maintained relationships with members of Congress and Executive branch staff. In addition, she established and coordinated close interactions with national political, governmental and regulatory organizations throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.
"I believe that One World Holdings, Inc. has identified a significant unmet opportunity in the children's toy market and is in a position to fully capitalize on this opportunity. I have confidence in the ability and integrity of One World management to make the company successful. I am excited to serve on the board and contribute to that success," said Delaney.
