TLMI has announced that Paul Teachout, Technical OEM Accounts Manager for Harper Corporation, has replaced Steve Lee, Vice President of Technology for Rotometrics, as the Chairman of the TLMI Awards Competition. After 37 years in the narrow web industry, Steve Lee will be retiring from Rotometrics in June of 2014 and has served TLMI’s membership in multiple capacities over the past three decades.
Frank Sablone, TLMI President, says, “Steve Lee has been an instrumental force in TLMI for 25 years. In 1988 he chaired the TLMI Technical Conference in St. Louis as Chairman of the association’s Technical Committee. He was the first Chairman of the Environmental Committee and became the permanent Chairman of the TLMI Awards Committee in 1995. Steve has also served three terms on the TLMI Board of Directors. I wish Steve all the best in his retirement and I am thrilled that Paul Teachout has accepted the position of Chairman, overseeing the judging panel and the prestigious Awards Competition moving forward.”
