Tim Black of Wonderware has been appointed to the Board of the PROFIBUS Trade Organization. Black is Wonderware’s product manager for extensibility products and has been with Wonderware since 2003. He holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Auburn University in Auburn, Ala.
“Wonderware is committed to promoting open technologies like PROFIBUS and OPC because the extended connectivity provided by these technologies greatly benefits Wonderware customers and the industry overall,” Black said.
Black will be taking over for his Wonderware colleague, Scott Kiser, who is global director of Applications Consulting Services, focused on ArchestrA technology. Kiser served on the PTO board from 1998 to 2004.
“The dedication, experience and expertise Scott brought to PTO will be missed, but Tim Black brings equally impressive experience to this position,” said Mike Bryant, executive director of the PTO. “Like Scott Kiser, Black has an extensive background in PROFIBUS and worked closely with the PTO when he worked at the Siemens PROFIBUS Interface Center in Johnson City, Tenn. His technology background and his marketing savvy will provide the board with an extremely valuable resource.”
