People on the Move highlights the career advancements of high-level trailblazers working professionally in diverse areas of standardization, contributing every day to the strength and success of the U.S. standards and conformance community.
The International Society of Automation (ISA), a member and accredited standards developer of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has named Claire Ramspeck as its executive director. Mary Ramsey, ISA’s current executive director, will retire at the end of the year.
Ms. Ramspeck brings with her 25 years of experience leading standards and technology businesses within associations. She is the founder of Hobbs Barrett, a private consulting firm that specializes in association management with a focus on development, adoption, and dissemination of standards and other technical products and services. Previously, she served as director of technology at ASHRAE and managing director of standards at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Ms. Ramspeck has served on boards and committees of ANSI and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Her ANSI leadership positions have included vice chair of the Board of Directors, chair of the Executive Standards Council, chair of the ANSI Board of Standards Review, and chair of the Organizational Member Forum. She won ANSI’s Meritorious Service Award in 2013, as well as the Normal R. Harbaugh Scholastic Achievement Award from the Georgia State University College of Business.
“Claire has an impressive history of collaborating with volunteers and subject matter experts to develop standards, research, and other projects that meet the needs of industry,” said ISA president Steve Mustard. “ISA’s value is rooted in our standards development, and we build our portfolio of market offerings around key standards that help industries lower costs, boost productivity, and improve safety and cybersecurity. Claire’s background will empower her to take ISA’s valuable content to the next level.”
INCITS, an ANSI member, has announced that David Bain will join the organization as its executive vice president. In his new role, Mr. Bain will oversee INCITS’ overall strategy, work with INCITS participants to help create consensus-driven, market-relevant standards, and drive growth across the organization.
Mr. Bain joins INCITS, a division of ITI, from his role as executive director of the Tech Integrity Council, a Washington, DC, consortium for ethical standards in technology. He was also vice president of standards for the Telecommunications Industry Association. Prior to those roles, he spent 25 years as a technology innovator, entrepreneur, and publisher.
“David’s deep and extensive work experience will bolster INCITS’ critical work developing voluntary industry consensus standards at a consequential time for our sector, especially as policymakers demand more industry self-governance,” said ITI president and CEO Jason Oxman. “We are thrilled to grow the INCITS team and leverage David’s expertise to enhance INCITS’ internationally-accredited standards committees work for its current and new members, and the broader standards community.”
“I am excited to lead the INCITS team and build its membership and expertise in important domains like quantum computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain, distributed and cloud computing, and sustainable data centers,” Mr. Bain said. Together, we have an important opportunity to develop and promote consensus-driven U.S. and global technology standards that convey the imprimatur and trust of ANSI, ISO, and IEC.”
LMI, an ANSI member, has announced that Marion Kennedy is its new vice president, intelligence market.
Ms. Kennedy comes to LMI with over 25 years of federal government and private sector experience, most recently at Torch.AI. There, she served as the executive for federal growth, focusing on expanding the organization’s artificial intelligence and machine learning data orchestration platform for federal customers. Previously, Ms. Kennedy was senior vice president of E3 Federal Solutions, where she established and led the Intelligence Division. She also spent 18 years at Scitor Corporation, where she directly supported the director of central intelligence’s community management staff and the office of the director of national intelligence. She rose to the position of sector vice president, national services, for Scitor.
“Marion is the right person to lead our intelligence market efforts,” said Pete Pflugrath, senior vice president of markets and growth at LMI. “Marion has hands-on experience both directly supporting the development of innovative solutions for the IC (Intelligence Community) and rapidly growing intelligence-related business divisions in the private sector. Marion is a real competitive advantage for LMI.”
