IPC Names Kovalevsky Russian Representative (4/14/09)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, Bannockburn, IL, has appointed Yury Kovalevsky as its official representative to Russia and Russian-speaking countries.

Kovalevsky’s appointment is part of IPC’s long-term plan to expand services and standards globally. His presence is expected to make IPC services widely available to companies in Russia, a market with enormous growth potential for both electronics and manufacturing services and printed board production.

“We’re thrilled to have Yury on board, and excited about the promise of engaging Russian companies in our standards development activities,” said David Bergman, IPC vice president of international relations. “Their participation will strengthen the standards because of the different demands in this market. We hope to get them involved in translation, contributing to new revisions and eventually originating standards as well.”

Kovalevsky received his degree as a development engineer for electronic equipment design and manufacturing in 2002 from Moscow State Technical University n.a. Bauman. He has held engineering and management positions for MNPP Saturn Ltd. And Tyco Electronics AMP GmbH. He now heads the Center of Technological Information for Producers of Electronics.

Kovalevsky will work closely with IPC European Representative Lars Wallin, based in Stockholm.
