Power 50: No. 32 Ira Neaman, Vantage Apparel

Welcome to the 2017 Power 50 list, which ranks the most influential people in the industry.

#32: Ira Neaman, Vantage Apparel (asi/93390)

2016 Rank: 26
Title: President Industry Experience: 40 years Birthplace: Pittsburgh

A mainstay on the Power 50 and past Counselor Person of the Year, Neaman steadied Vantage’s industry sales in 2016 following a mini-slump. His lower 2017 ranking could be the floor of his fall, as supplier-decorated apparel is trending upward and Vantage is well-positioned in that space.
