APMI International has announced Cynthia Freeby, Regional Sales Manager at Ametek Specialty Metal Products, as the recipient of its 2021 Fellow Award.

Established in 1998 and said to be APMI International’s most prestigious award, the Fellow Award recognises APMI members for their significant contributions to the goals, purpose, and mission of the organisation as well as for a high level of expertise in the technology of Powder Metallurgy, practice, or business of the PM industry.

Fellows are elected through their professional, technical, and scientific achievements; continuing professional growth and development; mentoring/outreach and contributions to APMI International committees.

During her forty-year Powder Metallurgy industry career, Freeby has been dedicated to the advancement of the PM industry. She co-chaired the annual Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) PM/87 technical conference and has served on many boards and committees. Freeby is reportedly the only person to have chaired three APMI chapters (Philadelphia, Dayton, and Michigan, USA), after holding numerous officer positions within each chapter. She received the MPIF Distinguished Service to PM Award in 2005, as well as the ASTM Distinguished Service Award in 2019 for her work in developing PM standards.

Freeby will receive elevation to Fellow status at PowderMet2021, during the Opening General Session on Monday, June 21, 2021, in Orlando, Florida, USA.
