November 11, 2014

ASTM International has announced that Katharine E Morgan, current ASTM Vice President of technical committee operations, will succeed long time ASTM President James A Thomas upon his retirement in 2017. The leadership succession was decided at the October 2014 meetings of the ASTM Board of Directors in Seoul, South Korea, following a unanimous decision.

February 2017

Morgan will assume the position of ASTM Executive Vice President on March 1, 2015, and will work closely with Thomas during a time of transition up to his retirement on February 1, 2017.

“Having been informed by Jim Thomas of his intention to retire, the executive committee of the board set out on a search for candidates whose passion for ASTM would again result in excellent stewardship of the Society,” stated Thomas A Schwartz, 2014 Chairman of the ASTM Board of Directors. “Kathie is precisely that individual, with her instinctual knowledge of the workings of ASTM technical committees, the industry sectors they represent, as well as the global standardisation landscape.”

Morgan started her career at ASTM in 1984 as a staff manager, rising to her current post in 2007. She holds a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering and a Master of Business Administration.

“Since assuming the presidency in 1992, Jim Thomas’ leadership has had an enormous positive impact on ASTM and its stakeholders. Jim is a respected ambassador, advocate and a voice not only for ASTM, but also for strategic standardisation as a whole. We wish Jim and Kathie well, and appreciate their deep dedication to the future of ASTM,” added Schwartz.
