Tom Sharpe, SMT Corporation, to Present Keynote at SMTA International 2010

May 24, 2010

Minneapolis, MN - The SMTA Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony at SMTA International, October 27, 2010, will feature SMT Corporation's Vice President, Tom Sharpe, as the keynote speaker. He will provide a first-hand narration and a photo-documented tour of the counterfeiting and resale of electronic components in Shantou & Shenzhen, China. The presentation provides compelling and clear evidence showing this threat is far worse than previously imagined.

Tom Sharpe is the Vice President of SMT Corporation, located in Sandy Hook Connecticut. Tom co-founded SMT with his wife Kirsten in 1995 and they have since built SMT into one of the industry's leading Independent Stocking Distributors of electronic components. In addition to being a long-time member of ERAI, Tom is the current Vice President of IDEA where he has served continuously on the Board of Directors since the year of it's formation in 2003.
