Apr 08, 2014

In recognition of their significant contributions of time, talent and ongoing leadership in IPC and the electronics industry, six long-time IPC volunteers were presented with IPC President’s Awards at IPC APEX EXPO® at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

The award recipients were: Daniel Gamota, Jabil Circuit, Inc.; E. Eddie Hofer, Rockwell Collins; Gerard O’Brien, Solderability Testing & Solutions, Inc.; Richard Rumas, Honeywell Canada; Tony Senese, Panasonic Electric Works; and Donald Walsh, Uyemura International Corp.

Gamota was honored for his role in IPC’s printed electronics initiative and service on 17 IPC technical committees; Hofer, for his leadership in the development of box build standard, IPC-A-630, Acceptability Standard for Manufacture, Inspection, and Testing of Electronic Enclosures and service on 31 IPC technical committees.

O’Brien was recognized for his service on 23 IPC technical committees and data collection to support standards development.

Rumas received his IPC President’s Award for his leadership role in the development of IPC-A-630 and service on 21 IPC technical committees. Senese was recognized for providing leadership on the UL laminate classification project. With his guidance, IPC spearheaded the reclassification of FR-4, while maintaining the integrity of UL’s polymeric safety standard, UL746E. Walsh was honored for his service on eight IPC committees, including three standards development committees, two market research committees and three steering council committees and chairmanship of the IPC EXPO Trade Show Subcommittee.

IPC and the entire electronics industry are fortunate to have these dedicated men volunteer their time and expertise to IPC standards and program development,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “Their work has enriched both the industry and IPC.”
