Acentech Staff Recognized at INCE-USA 2019 Winter Board Meeting
Acentech is pleased to announce that two staff members were recognized at the most recent Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE-USA) winter board meeting.
Acentech Principal Consultant Eric Wood was elected Fellow of the Institute by the INCE Board of Directors. (The designation of Fellow is awarded to INCE members that have made notable contributions to the Institute and the field of noise control engineering.) Eric has provided exceptional consulting in this area for over fifty years. He has served in multiple executive roles at INCE-USA including President from 2012 to 2014. He is currently the President of the INCE Foundation, a position he has held since 2009. Eric also serves on the advisory board and is the proceedings editor for the Technology for Quieter America (TQA) Program. Eric began his career at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft in 1967 and moved to Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN) in 1972. Eric is one of the founders of the current incarnation of Acentech, which secured its independence from BBN in 1991. During his half century of consulting, he has applied his skills to hundreds of industrial and environmental noise projects, authored numerous industry reference manuals, and has published and presented papers to leading industry associations.
At the same INCE-USA Board Meeting, Acentech Principal Consultant Michael Bahtiarian was elected by the board of directors to become INCE’s Executive Vice President/President-Elect.
Michael will become the INCE President at the conclusion of the winter board meeting in January 2020, and will then serve two years as President. Until then, he serves as an Executive Vice President.
