The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) elected its 2024 Board Chairman, and Vice Chairman and Treasurer.

Gregg Boucher, Group Chief Operating Officer of Wallingford, CT-based Ulbrich Stainless Steels and Special Metals, will serve as Chairman of the Board. Gene Lambert, Vice President of Sales for Batesville, IN-based Batesville Tool & Die, will serve as Vice Chairman and Treasurer.

Both will serve one-year terms.

Boucher succeeds outgoing PMA Board Chair Jeff Aznavorian, President of Plymouth, MI-based Clips & Clamps Industries.

Boucher has a two-tier approach to meet his mission of enhancing value to achieve metal forming success.

“Right from the start I plan to engage with a strategy consultant and work with PMA President David Klotz to formulate a long-term strategy for PMA,” Boucher said in a March 13 news release. “We must truly understand what the membership wants from the association so that we’re putting our time, energy and resources into those areas. We might find that PMA should enhance what we already do, or we may need to look at other opportunities as well.”

Boucher then plans to work with an independent research organization to conduct a member survey.

“PMA must also continue to evolve with its community, responding not only to the changes within its member companies, and their specific needs, but also to the needs of member-company management and executive teams,” Boucher adds. “Many companies are seeing younger leaders rising through the ranks, and their needs for information and support often differ from the needs of their predecessors. During my term as board chairman—and I hope well beyond—PMA will focus on identifying those needs, and on responding to them. This will allow PMA to remain the premiere trade association within the metal forming industry.”
