Senvol announces that its president, Zach Simkin, has been elected to serve as chairman for SME’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) Community. SME’s AM Technical Community Advisors serve as the primary resource for guidance to SME and its members on AM technologies, including materials, processes, industrial base and workforce. The primary responsibility of the SME AM Advisory Committee is to advise SME on initiatives, activities, policy, and strategy related to AM.
“AM continues to be a major strategic initiative for SME and a vital emerging sector for manufacturing as a whole,” says Suzy Marzano, product development manager at SME who oversees SME’s Technical Communities. “We’re thrilled at Zach’s selection as Chairman for the upcoming year, we appreciate his vision and leadership, and we look forward to working with him and the rest of the AM Community Advisors to help further SME’s leadership position in the industry.”
Community Advisors are chosen based on a combination of active industry contributions, reputation and personal commitment to expand the use of AM. Simkin is currently in the third year of a three-year term as an advisor, and previously served as vice chair before being elected chairman.
The role of SME’s AM Community Advisors is to provide guidance to SME on AM activities, initiatives and content to serve the AM community. The advisors represent various stakeholders within the technical community.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Zach for several years,” says Jennifer Fielding, the outgoing chair of SME’s Additive Manufacturing Community Advisors and section chief, Composite Performance and Applications Section at Air Force Research Laboratory. “He is extremely committed to helping the AM industry advance and is a true thought leader in the industry. Under his stewardship, SME’s AM Advisory Committee will continue to pave the way for the industry’s advancement.”
