AMT President Resigns

MCLEAN, VA-The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT) has announced that the organization will pursue new leadership following the resignation of President Robert K. Simpson. The resignation is effective immediately.

“In these critical economic times, we are seeking a leader who will continue to guide AMT on its mission of serving our members needs and supporting the interests of the manufacturing technology community as a whole,” says Ronald F. Schildge, AMT chairman and president of Transmares Corp. “The focus now for the AMT board of directors is to identify the president who will lead us to provide what our members need as they weather this global economic crisis, and who will continue to position AMT and its members to emerge even stronger.”

In the interim AMT senior staff, in cooperation with the board of directors, will oversee ongoing programs and day-to-day operation. The board of directors is initiating a search and hopes to move quickly on the naming of a new president.

Schildge continued, “On behalf of the AMT board of directors, we would like to thank Bob for his service to AMT and the manufacturing technology industry,” says Schildge. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Simpson joined AMT in May 2008 and will be pursuing other interests.
