IPC announced that Chairman of the IPC Board of Directors Stan Plzak died on September 22, 2003, at St. Elizabeth Hospital, Appleton, WI. Plzak spent most of his career as president and CEO of Pensar Corp. He helped found the company in 1983 and guided it until its acquisition by SMTC in 2000. He helped take Pensar's sales from $125,000 to $50 million, building its staff from five people to more than 600. After the company was sold, he served as executive vice president of SMTC and as a member of the board until he retired this summer. In the late 1980s, Plzak became involved in IPC. He assumed a role in the EMSI Council, a management-focused working group representing the assembly industry. A few years later, he became the Chair of the EMSI Steering Committee, holding this position until he accepted an invitation to join the IPC Board in 1997. He also served as liaison to the Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) and Committee Chairmen Council (CCC). Plzak was involved in the creation of the Assembly Market Research Council (AMRC) before its merger with the Technology Market Research Council (TMRC). He is survived by his wife Sara, his daughters Lydia and Mai, a granddaughter, his family, friends and industry members.
