ACMA reports that its immediate past chairman, and retired CEO of Core Molding Technologies, Kevin Barnett, will serve as its interim president until a permanent replacement is selected.

Last month, the association announced that Tom Dobbins would leave his role as president on to join the Aluminum Association as President & CEO.

‘Kevin has been a figure in the composites industry since the late-90s and an exceptional leader at Core Molding Technologies and on ACMA's board of directors,’ said Dobbins. Prior to his leadership at Core, he had extensive experience in manufacturing and public accounting. I am confident in his ability to lead during this transition phase. It's encouraging to leave ACMA in capable hands when I depart.’

‘I look forward to working with staff and the membership to continue our vital work, including elevating our industry to help save energy through lightweight products and solutions, rebuilding America's infrastructure, and developing new standards, legislation, materials and processes for composites and advanced materials,’ said Barnett.
