    “As ASQ president, I look forward to meeting challenges together-doing our work to advance the cause and awareness of quality together,” said Andres, during his official inaugural address at the World Conference Annual Banquet May 19. “We are a community-a family-an association of quality professionals. I encourage you to take care of the most important relationships, the relationship with your quality colleagues-the new ones, the virtual ones and those most treasured long lasting ones-after all, it’s about the people."

    Andres also voiced his commitment to continue advancing ASQ’s key initiatives: the ASQ Learning Institute, global expansion, Socially Responsible Organization and the Quality Body of Knowledge (QBOK).

    Andres has more than 25 years of experience in quality management, primarily in the aerospace industry.
