"We are very pleased and honored to have the opportunity to appoint Max Straub to the MTS Board of Directors," said Mr. Dave Anderson, Chairman of the Board for MTS. "Max's extensive background in the automotive industry, and her outstanding record of P&L leadership and other key executive roles with Bosch, make her an ideal fit for MTS. With Bosch's 130-year focus on technology leadership, and broad service to global automotive OEM's, Max's exposure to the rapidly changing technology trends in these markets is excellent. In addition, Bosch is among the world-leaders in sensor technology and their application to industrial automation and the 'internet of things'. This positions Max well to support MTS's growth strategies broadly, across both the Test and Sensor markets that the Company serves. Max also adds to the strong history of diversity on the MTS Board, which spans gender, geographic origin, and specific market expertise, reflecting MTS's core values and the markets that MTS serves around the world. We are proud of our history, and very pleased to have Max join us for the exciting future we see ahead for our company."
