IPC News: Four Industry Volunteers Receive IPC Rising Star Award

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, March 28, 2016 — In recognition of their leadership roles and support to IPC standards, education, advocacy and solutions to industry challenges, four of industry’s best and brightest were presented with an IPC Rising Star Award at IPC APEX EXPO 2016. There award recipients were: Steven Bowles, L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems, Cincinnati; Stan Rak, Continental Automotive GmbH; Matt Turpin, Zentech Manufacturing; and Peter Zhou, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

Bowles was honored for his leadership of the 2-30 Terms and Definitions Committee that recently issued IPC-T-50M and membership on nearly 20 additional technical committees, including the Committee Chairman’s Council and the Technical Activities Executive Committee.

Also honored, Rak was recognized for strengthening ties between IPC and Continental as well as the automotive industry and European region at large. He aligned Continental’s locations for an IPC corporate membership, acted as coordinator for Continental’s IPC training initiatives, and is encouraging Continental’s global technical experts to contribute to IPC Standards Working Groups.

The third recipient, Turpin, earned a Rising Star Award for his contributions to the Government Relations Steering Committee, active attendance at IPC’s annual GR event, IMPACT, hosting Congressman Chris Van Hollen at Zentech’s manufacturing facility in Baltimore and leading the company’s pursuit of the first ever qualified manufacturer listing to the IPC J-STD-001 Space Addendum and IPC J-STD-001 AND IPC-A-610 QML under IPC’s Validation Services Program.

Zhou was honored for his leadership of the IPC-1401 standard technical group which has been tasked with developing supply chain social responsibility management guidance. As part of his chairmanship, Peter invited 160 expert volunteers from 10 industry associations and 80 electronics manufacturing companies to join the group and facilitated 8 group meetings in two years to develop the standard. Currently IPC-1401 is in the final review stage with balloting expected within a month or two. The standard will be released later this year.

“IPC and the entire electronics industry are fortunate to have these dedicated individuals volunteer their time and expertise to IPC standards and program development,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “Their leadership and work has enriched both the industry and IPC within the past five years and will continue to have a lasting impact for many years to come.
