Tom Dobbins to Step Down as ACMA President after 13 Years of Leadership

February 17 2020

After thirteen years at the helm of the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), Tom Dobbins will leave his role as President on March 14, 2020. Under his leadership, ACMA has expanded its capacity to serve the composites manufacturing industry and firmly solidified the association’s position as the world’s largest industry trade group.

During Dobbins’ tenure with ACMA, the association expanded its market growth initiatives with the establishment of the Composites Growth Initiative and launched North America’s largest composites industry tradeshow – CAMX – in partnership with the Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (SAMPE). Additionally, ACMA achieved numerous legislative successes for the increased use of composites in various applications and markets, including defense, automotive, aerospace, and infrastructure. The association deepened ties with OEMs within automotive and aerospace with the introduction of the successful ACMA Composites Technology Days, opening doors for ACMA’s member companies to engage and educate engineers and designers within major OEMs.

Dobbins will join the Aluminum Association as President & CEO.
