Press release date: July 14, 2011
Rolling Meadows, IL - Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) President Jack Krecek, vice president and general manager of commercial channels for Elkay Manufacturing Company, has made his selection for a new co-chair to help lead PMI's Member Services Committee. Tim Doyle of Amerikam, Inc. will serve alongside existing Co-Chair Rick Reles, vice president of kitchens, cast iron and corporate accounts worldwide for Kohler Co.
Doyle is the quality assurance manager and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) management representative for Amerikam. He oversees the development, implementation and maintenance of the quality management system. Together, with his staff, the engineering and manufacturing departments, his responsibilities include the development and maintenance of processes and control plans to ensure product meets or exceeds customer and regulatory requirements.
"The committee, along with PMI membership, has a unique opportunity to create and stretch in some areas that are non-traditional for PMI. We will be treading some interesting new ground. I look forward to the challenge," said Doyle.
While effective immediately, the three-year term for this position officially begins with the 2011 PMI Fall Conference, being held September 18-21 at the Liaison Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Krecek's decision to appoint Doyle was based upon PMI meeting attendance, leadership, expertise and an overall commitment to PMI.
