February 26, 2010

Shamrock Technologies, Inc. recently announced that it has named Steven M. Parker its president and chief operating officer (COO). William B. Neuberg will remain chairman and CEO.

A 30-year veteran of advanced materials industries, Parker has held key executive positions at the former Allied-Signal Corp. (now Honeywell), the Ausimont Division of Montedison SpA, Saint-Gobain and, most recently, as division president and commercial director for UK-based Oxford Instruments. With his background in global business, Parker served in an advisory role to the Shamrock leadership team during much of 2009.

“Shamrock capitalized on the recent economic downturn, reshaping and refocusing our growth goals and strategies,” said Neuberg. “Steve’s sound advice and counsel were instrumental in helping me sharpen the company’s vision, and, in the process, it became apparent that he would be the ideal leader to help make that growth happen.”
