Frances Schrotter Appointed Chief Operating Officer

New York, Mar 26, 2004

The president of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce that Frances E. Schrotter has been promoted to the position of senior vice president and chief operating officer of the Institute. Ms. Schrotter has held the title of senior vice president since 1997. In this position, she has had primary responsibility for the Institute’s activities supporting and facilitating the participation of U.S. interests in domestic, regional and international standardization activities.

Ms. Schrotter, who first joined ANSI in 1976, has worked with numerous domestic and international committees developing standards in dozens of industries. She spent many years in the information technology standards arena, and served as the first international secretariat of the ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology.

Commenting on the appointment, ANSI president and CEO Mark Hurwitz remarked, "Fran Schrotter has provided sage and inspired leadership in her many years with ANSI. Her new role is a reflection of her leadership skills, significant accomplishments and the high regard we as an organization hold her in, along with the esteem of the extended ANSI Federation. My proud and enthusiastic congratulations to Fran on this well-deserved achievement.”

While Ms Schrotter will continue to lead the Institute’s activities regarding US participation in domestic, regional and international standardization activities, she will also manage and coordinate the ANSI administrative operations, such as membership, communications, education and training services, and human resources. She continues to work with the ANSI constituency and other affected interests to identify the need for new standardization programs and collaborate with these groups to facilitate their timely implementation.
