New PMP Certified Project Managers at Sumitomo

August 7, 2011

Chesapeake, Virginia, Monday August 8, 2011

Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification has become essential within many industries today. This profession is evolving at a rapid pace, and customers seek suppliers who are PMP certified to manage their large projects. It has become recognized as a required skill set for success in business. Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA) recognizes the need for our employees to become PMP Certified in order to more effectively manage projects from inception to delivery. We are proud to announce that Todd Bobak, our Chief Research and Development Engineer, and Shawn Lambert, our Project Manager, became PMP certified as of July 29, 2011.

Todd holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Binghamton University and he has more than 16 years of engineering, managerial, and project management experience. As Chief R & D Engineer, Todd leads a small team in developing new and profitable power transmission products for the commercial and industrial markets. In this role, project management processes have been instrumental in his management of product development from inception to final product release.

Shawn holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Old Dominion University and he also has more than 15 years of engineering, managerial, and project management experience. While serving as our Chief Design Engineer for two and a half years, he raised the value of service to our customers, and in June 2010, Shawn was promoted to Project Manager for SMA. In this role, he has been continuously using project management processes to efficiently manage large customer projects for SMA.

Having PMP certified employees demonstrates Sumitomo's ability to have the skills necessary to execute projects on time and within budget. Sumitomo plans to continue to increase our PMP certified managers and improve our project-related business.
