During his two-year term, Bill plans to focus on making stronger chapters by providing more tools and support. Leveraging and refining the chapter model to support growth ensures that members' voices are heard and involved with solutions development. Additionally, he plans to brand the SMTA as the industry leader in circuit assembly technology with strong technical programs. One way he will accomplish this is to work with like-minded organizations to the mutual benefit of all members.

"I have spent many years developing technology roadmaps and strategies and have a deep appreciation of how SMTA and other industry groups help guide the success of individual companies and the entire industry. I know that finding new ways to share the knowledge of the SMTA will bring even more value to our members. I am thankful to have my company's support and look forward to bringing energy and commitment to growing this vital organization."

Based in Wisconsin, Bill is the Manager, Manufacturing Technology Development at Plexus Manufacturing Solutions and has been involved in the electronics manufacturing industry since 1985 with both printed circuit fabrication and printed circuit assembly (PCA). He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, a Masters of Business Administration degree, and has been an American Society for Quality Certified Quality Engineer.
