IPC AMBASSADOR’S COUNCIL OFFERS EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE Dedication to Serving Industry Beyond Their Years

Mar 22, 2014

While induction into some Halls of Fame normally signals long-standing contributions that are honored at retirement, members of IPC’s newly formed Ambassador’s Council are sidelining their golden years to continue serving IPC and the electronics manufacturing industry. Comprising members of the IPC Hall of Fame, the appropriately named Ambassadors are using their experience and expertise to offer advice and guidance to IPC and its programs in order to further advance the electronics industry.

IPC has embarked on several ambitious initiatives dedicated to increasing member value, and the creation of the Ambassador’s Council now gives the staff a “Hall of Fame” channel to identify and develop robust ideas to increase the scope of standards, membership growth and government relations on a global basis,” said Sanjay Huprikar, vice president of Member Success. “The Hall of Famers possess a wealth of knowledge, experience and insights into the future, and we look forward to their continued high level of dedication and contribution to the industry.”

Ambassador Council members include Dieter Bergman, IPC; Jack Bramel, Bramel & Associates; Walt Custer, Custer Consulting Group; Don Dupriest, Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control; Dan Feinberg, Fein-line Associates; Jack Fisher, Interconnect Technology Analysis; Denny Fritz, MacDermid Inc.; Lionel Fullwood, WKK Distribution Ltd. (Hong Kong); Bill Jacobi, William Jacobi & Associates; Bernie Kessler, Bernard Kessler & Associates; Marv Larson, Marvin Larson & Associates; Bob Neves, MIT, Microtek (Changzhou) Laboratories; Ray Pritchard (the namesake for whom the IPC Hall of Fame award was named); Ray Prasad, Ray Prasad Consultancy Group; Doug Sober, Shengyi Technology Co. Ltd.; Vern Solberg, Solberg Technical Consulting; and Gene Weiner, Weiner International Associates.

One of the first IPC initiatives that the Council will pursue is the dissemination of trusted information on counterfeit components. Denny Fritz is spearheading the activities which will include a video presentation that will be shared with the industry through IPC’s YouTube channel in coming weeks.

The Council will hold a members’ meeting at IPC APEX EXPO next week in Las Vegas to continue building upon its plans to support IPC and the industry. For more information on the meeting or the Council, contact Dieter Bergman at DieterBergman@ipc.org.
