AMI appoints new CEO

US manufacturing non-profit Advanced Manufacturing International (AMI) has appointed Joe Veranese as its new CEO.

Veranese previously held roles as chief information officer for The Manufacturing Technology Deployment Group (MTDG) and the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM).

AMI reportedly aims to help small to medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) in the US develop and grow.

“I look forward to working with the team at AMI alongside our network of SMMs to strengthen and advance the manufacturing industry,” said Veranese. "With a greater focus on education and through the development of a competent workforce, we can help SMMs be better equipped to adopt smart manufacturing solutions and become more efficient and competitive.”
