PTDA Foundation Board Begins 2024 Term

Matt Pavlinsky, Director of Power Transmission Products at Applied Industrial Technologies, leads the PTDA Foundation as its 2024 President.

The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) Foundation Board of Trustees began their leadership terms earlier in January.

Matt Pavlinsky, Director of Power Transmission Products at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland, OH) assumes the role of president. Pavlinsky has been involved with the PTDA Foundation since 2018.  Most recently he served on the Board of Trustees and the PT WORK Force Education, Research and Knowledge committee.

“I am excited for the collective expertise and acumen the 2024 board brings to our efforts as we look in a new direction,” Pavlinsky said in a Jan. 22 news release. “The Foundation is shifting its efforts to where it can have the most impact. Namely, building awareness of rewarding careers in the power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry and developing initiatives focused on providing vital educational and financial support for those interested in pursuing PT/MC careers or who already are working in the industry.”

Joining Pavlinsky on the PTDA board in 2024 are:

  • Vice President Mike McLain – VP of Allied Bearing Supply (Harahan, LA)

  • Scott Taylor – VP & General Manager of Schaeffler Canada Inc. (Stratford, Canada)
  • JT Wubbolding – VP of Sales at NORD Drivesystems (Waunakee, WI)

Newly-appointed PTDA Foundation Director Kevin Koreman will support the board in its execution of plans and programs. Most recently, Koreman was member services specialist with PTDA. He began his career with PTDA as operations & administrative assistant in 2018.
