It has been my priviledge to serve as CEO for three associations since 1995. I came to MTI in 2005 as Executive Vice President and was then promoted to CEO of MTI Management in 2008 upon then CEO, Lance Miller's retirement. I strive to have a great balance of traditions and engaging new technology and solutions to help our association engage the interest of the very dynamic demographic groups we have represented. I am very active in the Florida Society of Association Executives, Tennessee Society of Association Executives, American Society of Association Executives and Council of Manufacturing Associations to keep my skills in top shape for peak performance for the Metal Treating Institute. My wife DeAnna and I have three grown children in their early 30's and 5 grandchildren who keep us plenty busy.
