Darrell Dal Pozzo

“The team with the best players wins.” -Jack Welch

As you join us this month and take a look around, whether in the print or online, you might notice some new names and faces on the Quality team. Take a moment and join me in welcoming the newest additions to the Quality family.

Darrell Dal Pozzo joins us as group publisher. During his 12 years at Reed Business Information, Darrell held both sales and management roles where he built and executed numerous new integrated media programs. Darrell can be reached at [email protected].

Kari O’Rourke

Kari O’Rourke joins Quality as managing editor. She comes to us from Cygnus Business, where she held a variety of positions including associate editor on Advanced Imaging. Kari handles our social media efforts including LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. She also will be taking over the Innovations column and will work with our columnists. Kari can be reached at [email protected].

Genevieve Diesing

Genevieve Diesing joins the staff as associate editor. Genevieve has held a variety of freelance positions as well as an associate editor position on Manufacturing Today. Genevieve is responsible for products, case studies and the news section. She can be reached at [email protected].

As I’m sure you see happen in your regular business cycle, the changing of faces often leads to fresh ideas, innovation and new products. With the additions of Darrell, Kari and Genevieve, we expect the same to happen with Quality. Be sure to watch the magazine and the Web site in the coming months to witness the changes firsthand.

Darrell, Kari and Genevieve will be out and about in the coming months as well. Most notably they will be attending IMTS, to be held September 13-18 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, and look forward to meeting many of you then.


In 2011, Quality will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. The planning has already started for the year-long celebration, and we’re looking for reader input. What do you think is the single greatest contribution to the quality field in the past 50 years and why?
