Nexight Group’s technical expertise is central to our ability to provide clients with smart facilitation and accurate products that drive stakeholders to action. That’s why we’re pleased to welcome Dr. Warren Hunt, former Executive Director of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), as our new Chief Technical Officer starting November 1.
“Warren brings an exceptional mix of technical, management, and leadership skills to Nexight,” said Ross Brindle, Executive Vice President. “His leadership of TMS, a professional society for material scientists and engineers, equips him with intimate knowledge of the unique challenges facing these organizations. He has also worked in world-class industry R&D groups and understands the challenges R&D managers face in delivering successful results. I am delighted to welcome Warren to the Nexight family.”
Dr. Hunt has been part of the TMS staff since 2006, serving as Technical Director, Executive Director, and most recently as Materials Innovation Director. Prior to TMS, Dr. Hunt founded Aluminum Consultants Group, Inc., a company created to provide total solutions in aluminum materials technology for today’s market. He also had a successful 19-year career with Alcoa Technical Center, one of the world’s largest light metals research laboratories.
Dr. Hunt obtained his MS and PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, and serves as an adjunct professor at Case Western Reserve University. A Fellow of ASM International, Dr. Hunt has received two IR 100 awards, published more than 50 technical papers, and edited three books.
At Nexight Group, Dr. Hunt will focus on building capabilities in materials science and engineering to complement Nexight’s existing expertise in strategic planning and analysis, roadmapping, facilitation, partnership development, and communications. In doing so, he expands Nexight’s technical expertise and brings new insight to the problems our clients are faced with solving.
“I have greatly enjoyed working with Nexight and its principals, Jack Eisenhauer and Ross Brindle, on various projects over many years, and I look forward to working with them in supplementing Nexight’s technical capacity and helping them grow their business,” said Dr. Hunt. “I also hope to have a role in advancing the material science and engineering community through efforts organized among multiple societies or in areas outside the portfolio of professional societies generally. This is a singular time and opportunity for the material science and engineering field, and I hope to be able to continue to contribute to its collective progress.”
