Promex Director of Engineering Suzette Pangrle to Speak at IEEE Event for Women in Engineering in Management

Pangrle Draws from Management Experience at Fast-Growing Silicon Valley EMS to Discuss Importance of Keeping Up with Technology at IEEE SCV TEMS/WIE-Sponsored Panel Sept. 3 at AMD

Santa Clara, CA – September 3, 2015 – PRNewswire/iReach – Promex Industries Inc., an electronic manufacturing services (EMS) provider that integrates conventional SMT with semiconductor microelectronic packaging and assembly, announced today that its Director of Engineering Suzette Pangrle, PhD will speak at the Women in Engineering in Management: “Truth Talk.” The panel discussion and guided networking event, co-sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley Chapters of the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS) and the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Group, will begin at 6 pm on September 3, 2015 on the AMD Campus in Sunnyvale, Calif

“Promex has always been known for the high caliber of its engineering staff,” said Promex President and CEO Richard Otte. “Now we are also proud to be known as a company committed to the diversity of its executive management staff, and applaud Suzette’s leadership position in the IEEE SCV WIE.”

As the Director of Engineering at Promex, Pangrle manages the development of new processes for SMT, chipon-board and IC packaging, and works directly with customers to identify and translate their requirements to process flows. A former chair of the IEEE SCV WIE Group, Pangrle holds a PhD in Materials Engineering, an MS in Metallurgy and Polymer Science Engineering and BS in Chemical Engineering.

“It’s important for all engineers, male and female alike, to make time to actively update their technical skill set,” Pangrle said. “I advise women engineers who would rather go for an advanced technical degree than an MBA that they must be able to evaluate the financial and marketing implications of new technology for their company if they want to move up the management ladder.”
