Henkel's Toleno Elected to SMTA Board of Directors

Electronics industry members have nominated and elected Brian Toleno, Ph.D., of Henkel to the Surface Mount Technology Association’s (SMTA) Board of Directors. Toleno’s term will span three years, during which time he will serve on the association’s planning and globalization committee.

“Even though Brian has just now been elected to our Board of Directors, his work with and support of the SMTA for well over a decade has been invaluable,” said JoAnn Stromberg, executive administrator, SMTA. “He is always willing to assist with anything-from writing and presenting papers at SMTA events to offering technical advice. Brian is viewed as one of our go-to resources for all things surface-mount materials-related. I’m delighted that his peers have now officially elected him to serve on our board and I’m personally looking forward to working with him.”

“To be nominated and then elected to the SMTA Board by your peers is a humbling and very gratifying experience,” Toleno said. “I have seen the excellent work the SMTA has done to promote education, foster industry communities and further the advance of the electronics assembly industry. I’m honored to be part of the Board of Directors and to be working with the other board members to help extend the SMTA’s successful endeavors.”
