Robert (Bob) H. Chalker

NACE International, the Corrosion Society, has named Robert (Bob) H. Chalker as its new Executive Director, effective Aug. 4.

Chalker has served for 18 months as managing director and CEO of ASQ Global, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Society for Quality. He has extensive experience in strategic planning and global development.

“On behalf of the entire board, we are pleased to welcome Bob to NACE,” said Dr. Chris Fowler, president of NACE International. “Bob is a proven leader and brings over 15 years of executive leadership experience to NACE. He has the ideal skill set to lead NACE into the future.”

Prior to joining ASQ Global in 2009, Chalker served for five years as Director, Global Development and Strategic Planning, at SAE International. There, he was responsible for the society's $57 million in revenues and for setting its sales and marketing direction. He also led the customer service team, membership and section activities, pre-professional educational initiatives, and the SAE Foundation.

From 1981 to 2003, Chalker worked for Delphi Corp., where he held positions in sales, engineering and  manufacturing. His last position was sales director and global customer manager.

“The combination of his ASQ Global, SAE International, and Delphi experience has allowed Bob to develop a unique, in-depth understanding of the diverse and complex customer requirements within the global market place,” NACE said in a statement.

Chalker holds an MBA from Oakland University (Rochester, MI) and a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He and his wife Kim will be relocating to Houston, TX. They have two grown children.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead NACE International at such an important moment in the history of our association,” Chalker said. “I am looking forward to working with NACE members, volunteer leaders, and staff in fulfilling our mission to protect people, assets, and the environment from the impact of corrosion.”

NACE International, based in Houston, has more than 23,000 members in 110 countries.
