CCAM Appoints New Prez, Executive Director

April 24, 2014

RICHMOND, VA—The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) today announced a new President and Executive Director.  Joseph F. Moody, a business and technical leader with expertise in diverse industries, will lead CCAM’s manufacturing research mission and continue to build the center’s membership of commercial, academic and public partners.

“Joseph’s leadership will take the CCAM research mission to a new level,” said Armand F. Lauzon, Jr., Chairman of the CCAM Board of Directors.  “He brings a new vision for the vital role CCAM will play in breakthrough manufacturing developments.”

Moody succeeds Interim President and Executive Director Dr. Michael Beffel who was appointed in 2013.  “The CCAM Board and membership thank Dr. Beffel for his interim leadership and accomplishments, even as he worked closely with the Board to identify a permanent leader for the role,” Lauzon said. 

In a career spanning three decades, Moody held top engineering and senior leadership roles in the automotive, oil and gas, and mining and exploration industries.  With an emphasis on technology and product development as well as process innovation, Moody led global research and development teams, strategy and governance activities, and manufacturing facility green-field developments.  He holds a Bachelor of Science with honors in electrical engineering from Kettering University and an MBA with high distinction from the University of Michigan.

Moody takes the helm at CCAM as the research facility in Prince George County, VA, develops new production ready surface and manufacturing technologies that will rapidly be transferred to commercial use.
