ASTM International Promotes Mohsen Seifi to VP of New Global Advanced Manufacturing Programs Division

ASTM International has announced the promotion of Mohsen Seifi, Ph.D., to vice president of global advanced manufacturing programs. Under Seifi’s leadership, ASTM’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has seen significant growth since its launch in 2018, resulting in the creation of the new Global Advanced Manufacturing Programs business division. As head of this division, Seifi will expand ASTM’s executive team and continue to grow ASTM’s footprint and thought leadership in the field of advanced/additive manufacturing technologies.

“ASTM International is the global focal point for research to standards in advanced manufacturing thanks to the vision and leadership of Dr. Seifi and the excellent global team that he has assembled,” said ASTM president Katharine Morgan. “While much has been accomplished, we are energized and even more excited about the opportunities ahead.”

Seifi, who previously served as ASTM’s director of global additive manufacturing programs, was instrumental in the launch of the AM CoE, and is a globally recognized expert in process-structure-property relationships for metal additive manufacturing. His publications have been cited more than 3000 times in the field.
