A new chairman and three directors have been announced by the Control System Integrators Association.

05/20/2011


Stephen M. Goldberg was elected to a three-year term as chairman of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA). Goldberg succeeds Ed Diehl, who completed his term in April.

There were three new directors elected to the board at the association’s annual executive conference:

  • Eduardo Acosta, chief executive officer, Omnicon S.A., Cali, Colombia
  • Richard Brueggman, president and chief executive office, Data Science Automation, Pittsburgh, Penn.
  • Sam Hoff, president, Patti Engineering, Inc., Auburn Hills, Mich.

Lynda J. Patterson, CAE, FASAE, continues as president. Robert Lowe is the association’s executive director.

Goldberg is director of information technologies at Matrix Technologies, Inc., a Certified CSIA member based near Toledo, Ohio. Among his top goals is to increase recognition of CSIA with end users.

“We want CSIA to be first resource companies turn to when looking for help with system integration challenges,” Goldberg says. “As part of this effort, we hope to build the reputation of the organization and acceptance of the CSIA certification program as the way to optimize the results for any system integration project.”

During Diehl’s term, CSIA membership grew by more than 12 percent and increased the association’s presence in the international control systems integration community. Diehl is co-CEO and vice president of engineering and operations at Concept Systems, Inc., a Certified Control System Integrator headquartered in Albany, Ore.
