DEARBORN, Mich., May 1, 2006 The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) announced today that Mark Tomlinson has been named Executive Director and General Manager. He replaces Nancy Berg, who held the position since February 2000 and resigned last summer after 24 years with SME to pursue a business that helps other non profits focus strategically to grow and to become more relevant and competitive. Tomlinson joined SME in 2003 as Director of Membership with responsibility for Chapter and Technical Activities. In 2005, his responsibilities were expanded after being named Managing Director of Membership.

Nancy has been retained by SME to help further Plan 2010 and advance other initiatives, including partnerships with other organizations and companies."

Prior to joining SME, Tomlinson held a variety of positions, including Vice President, Lamb Technicon Machining, where he was responsible for the company's Machining Systems Engineering US operations, including product engineering, new product development, controls, CAD, proposal and related engineering support functions.
