Dr. Peter Hahn selected to serve on national board for presidential award
The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award is the only presidential award for organization performance excellence and innovation. Named for former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Malcolm Baldrige, this award was created by Congress to recognize role-model businesses, establish criteria for improvements, and share best practices. When formed in 1987, it was designed to enhance the competitiveness of U.S. businesses. The scope has been expanded since then. In 1999, health care and education were added, and in 2007, nonprofit/government organizations were added. As of 2016, 113 awards have been presented to 106 organizations.
As a member of this Board, Dr. Hahn joins an elite group of senior leaders and experienced management professionals from across all sectors of the U.S. economy, including manufacturing, service, small business, health care, education, government, and nonprofit. This group will determine the recipients for the 2017 awards. Up to 18 awards are given annually.
Because of his involvement as an Examiner, he will receive recognition for his service from the Secretary of Commerce and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Congratulations, Dr. Hahn!
