Morgan was joined at the event by Thomas Marsh, CEO of Centrotrade and ASTM International’s 2017 Chairman of the Board. “Kathie brings proven leadership skills, a deep understanding of the global standards community, a passion for ASTM International’s mission, and much more,” stated Marsh. “ASTM International will continue to grow and thrive under her leadership.”

Morgan served as Executive Vice President for the past two years. Prior to that, she was Vice President of Technical Committee Operations, leading a fifty member team that supports the volunteer work of ASTM International’s 30,000 members worldwide.
