 been selected to serve as Chair of the International Society of Automotive

 manufacturing, it is important for SAE to be able to present timely and
 valuable information on the topic as part of its manufacturing technical
 programs.  SAE established its manufacturing initiative in 1995.  The
 information technology committee was formed to support this initiative.  We
 look to this committee to give SAE guidance and direct its efforts regarding
 information technology in manufacturing.  We are looking forward to Eric's
 input and leadership to this important committee," said SAE division manager
 of engineering meetings Dave Porecca.
     Prior to joining IOC, Head served as marketing and senior territory
 manager in the Detroit office of the Brady Corporation, where he provided
 value-added bar code systems to the automotive industry and was awarded
 "Innovator of the Year" three years in a row for generating new product ideas.
