In recognition of their leadership and contributions to IPC and the electronics industry within the past five years, IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries presented an IPC Rising Star award to Yusaku Kono, Japan Unix, and Pierre-Emmauel Gourtorbe, Airbus, at IPC APEX EXPO 2018.

The IPC Rising Star award is given to individuals who have shown significant leadership ability in the past five years, making an impact on IPC and the electronics industry because of their support to IPC standards, education, advocacy and solutions to industry challenges.

Yusaku Kono, Japan Unix, an active IPC volunteer, has dedicated the past three years to enhancing the value of IPC standards among Japanese electronics manufacturers. Kono serves on the IPC-A-610 Automotive Addendum Task Group and the J-STD-001 Task Group.

Pierre-Emmanuel Goutorbe, Airbus, is a PCB expert, covering PCB development, PCB-related standards and PCB technical support for all space projects at Airbus’ European sites.

“Both Pierre-Emmanuel and Yusaku have taken on strong leadership roles in IPC, and we and the entire electronics industry have benefited from their skills and expertise,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “We are very fortunate that they have chosen to share their knowledge with IPC and the industry at large.”
