18 October 2021
|Mr Ian Margerison|
The T.I.C. President Dr Daniel Persico has announced the appointment of Mr Ian Margerison as the Association’s new Executive Marketing Manager (EMM), succeeding Mr Roland Chavasse who steps down in November.
Mr Margerison has been in the tantalum industry for almost 25 years and brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to the role. Ian started his career as a Development Engineer at AVX Tantalum Corporation in Paignton, UK. More recently he spent over a decade at Metalysis, where he led efforts in tantalum additive manufacturing powder development and other key projects.
The EMM is one of the Association’s three staff and as such plays an essential role in delivering value to members and representing the Association.
The overarching responsibility of the EMM is to emphasize the T.I.C. brand as the global center of excellence for tantalum and niobium. Activities specific to this goal are leading outreach efforts related to member retention and identifying and signing up new members. Additional responsibilities include design and development of the Association’s quarterly and annual publications, the monthly newsletter, as well as maintaining and upgrading the quality of the T.I.C.’s website.
Along with the Technical Officer, the EMM proactively supports the General Assembly and works collaboratively with the Secretary General, Emma Wickens, to ensure T.I.C. members and stakeholders receive the highest possible quality of event and level of service.
As mentioned in the October monthly newsletter, the T.I.C. is also in search mode for a new Technical Officer. In the period this position is vacant, Ian will assume responsibility for publishing the statistics, he will sit on the ITSCI Governance Committee as the T.I.C. representative, and support additional supply chain matters of importance to the T.I.C.
In welcoming Mr Margerison, Dr Persico said “Many of our members know Ian as he has been active in the T.I.C. for many years and sat on the Executive Committee while with Metalysis. The ability to retain an individual of Mr Margerison’s caliber and experience is a fortunate event and will allow the Association to forgo the usual “break-in” period. Please extend a hearty congratulations and welcome back to Ian when you see him in London.”
