AMPP Appoints Dr. Amir Eliezer as New Board Chairman

(P&GJ) — The Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), a global nonprofit representing corrosion and coatings professionals and industries in 130 countries, has named Professor Amir Eliezer, Ph.D., as chair of the board of directors. His term began on January 1, 2023.

“It’s a great honor to serve as AMPP board chair, especially having arrived from a small country such as Israel to represent a global society now, and also serve as a member of the AMPP merger transition team,” Eliezer said. “I’m excited to volunteer and lead the AMPP board following my 20 years of active leadership roles, and I’m honored to be the first elected AMPP board of directors chair.”

Eliezer has held various leadership positions with the organization, including NACE European Area chair in 2015. He is involved in international industries and serves as director of the Corrosion Research Center at Shamoon College of Engineering, Israel. Eliezer is the recipient of the 2013 NACE International H.H. Uhlig Award and has presented at more than 150 seminars and lectures, been published in more than 220 scientific publications, and played a crucial role in AMPP's involvement with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Network of Experts Program.

“In my role, I look forward to working with the AMPP board and talented staff to increase our outreach, certification, and accreditation value for our members based on global impact, advocacy, and legislative tools. In addition, I plan to increase our diversity and expand the awareness of our awards programs, including the AMPP 2023 Awards, which will be presented in Denver at the AMPP Annual Conference and Expo,” Eliezer said.
