International automation body has new president

Terrence G Ives

Terrence G. Ives is the 2013 Worldwide President of the International Society of Automation. He will work with ISA leaders during the year to continue moving the Society toward meeting its strategic goals.

Ives is the third member of the Ives family to serve as president of ISA. His father, the late C. Blair Ives, Jr., was president of ISA in 1994. His uncle, Robert P. Ives, served as president of ISA in 2003.

Ives is extremely well qualified to hold the office as he has held the following high-level ISA positions: Society Treasurer, Executive Board Parliamentarian, Finance Committee Chair, Investment Committee Chair, District 2 Vice President, and Philadelphia Section President and Exhibit Chairman.

He received a bachelor of science degree in industrial systems engineering from Ohio University. He is an active member of the Philadelphia chapters of the Young Presidents’ Organization and the World Presidents’ Organization.

“In today’s complex, global business environment, it is absolutely essential that industry leaders and automation and control professionals connect with one another to stay current on technical challenges and market trends, share best practices, collaborate on innovation, and exchange insights and ideas,” he says. “ISA, through its unmatched combination of standards development, education, training, certification, conferences, and networking opportunities, is uniquely positioned to help automation and control professionals advance their careers while helping manufacturers and other organizations improve operational reliability, profitability, safety and security.”

He is the third generation president and owner of the Ives family business, a process control manufacturing representative and stocking distributor serving the industries of eastern and central US states of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Southern New Jersey and Virginia. The company founded in 1954, provides a diverse range of process control equipment, including valves, regulators, wireless products, flow products, pressure gauges, control products, level instrumentation, sanitary products, temperature instruments, analytical products, electric heat trace and bio-pharmaceutical products.

Ives also serves as a volunteer committee officer for a Philadelphia-area Boy Scout Troop, helping to direct the troop’s $500,000 capital campaign and investment portfolio.
