Two industry leaders have secured open positions on the Board of Governors of SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings, while two incumbents attained reelection in the association’s 2016 election process.

Ross Boyd, CEO - Founder of TruQC LLC, and Mana H. Al-Mansour, coating specialist with Saudi Aramco, were voted into the two open positions, SSPC announced.

Joseph Walker of Elcometer Inc. and Joyce Wright of Huntington Ingalls Industries - Newport News Shipbuilding were reelected by the membership for the two incumbent positions on the ballot.

New Board Members

Boyd was the winning candidate for the Other Product Supplier demographic, one of two open positions in the 2016 Board of Governors election.

Ross Boyd, TruQC

Ross Boyd, founder and CEO of TruQC, will join the SSPC Board of Governors representing the Other Product Supplier demographic.

Boyd founded TruQC, a cloud-based quality control and process documentation application for the coatings industry. Based in Kirkwood, MO, TruQC developed its software to be compliant with SSPC QP, QN and QS certifications, the association said.

Boyd has worked with hundreds of contractors, manufacturers and inspectors to learn their processes, documentation needs and requirements, SSPC noted.

In the Facility Owner demographic, the other open position, Al-Mansour came out on top as the winning candidate.

Mana Al-Mansour, Saudi Aramco

Mana H. Al-Mansour, coating specialist at Saudi Aramco, was elected to the SSPC Board of Governors representing the Facility Owner demographic.

Al-Mansour has worked exclusively in the field of protective coatings for nearly twenty years, SSPC said.

His responsibilities with the Consulting Services Department (CSD), Saudi Aramco Central Engineering, for Saudi Aramco include development of engineering standards, providing technical support to capital programs and operations departments, introducing new technologies and new talent development.

Returning Board Members

In terms of the incumbents, Walker will return for his second term as a board member following his reappointment in the Other Product Supplier demographic, SSPC reported.

Wright will continue to serve on the board in the Facility Owner demographic as a result of her reelection. This will be Wright’s first full term in the position, the association explained, as she had earlier been appointed to complete the remaining term of Gail Warner, who retired in 2015.

Terms for the new board members will begin July 1.
