SANTA CLARA, CA – The Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA) today announced Michael Creeden as recipient of the first PCEA Leadership Award, for his lifetime service in the pursuit of educating and training PCB design engineers.
The announcement was made at the PCEA annual meeting in conjunction with the PCB West conference and exhibition. Creeden, who is PCEA’s first vice chairman, was instrumental in the launch of PCEA and the negotiation to acquire the assets of UP Media Group, including PCB West.
“More than anyone else, Mike Creeden willed this organization from creation to where it is today,” said Stephen Chavez, chairman, PCEA, in announcing the award.
“His tireless optimism and determination helped overcome the challenges of launching a new all-volunteer organization right at the start of a pandemic, and his leadership brought us through a significant acquisition and to this point where we stand on the cusp of real industry influence. It gives me great pleasure to announce Michael Creeden as the inaugural recipient of The PCEA Leadership Award.”
