Power & Motion has named six industry leaders to its first Editorial Advisory Board. The board’s role will be to help guide the present and future content direction of Power & Motion and to help identify trends and innovations that will shape the future of the fluid power and motion control industries.
“The role of an Editorial Advisory Board is one of essential guidance for our editors to ensure their coverage remains valid, current and beneficial to our audience,” said Group Content Director Michelle Kopier. “Working with key figures in the industry helps us keep a pulse on what lays ahead for the modern fluid power and motion control industry.”
The six members of the board are the first members of what we expect will be a larger group of industry experts from all segments of the industry. We continue to accept nominations for Editorial Advisory Board members, and those nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
This first group reflects the changes in this industry that led us to expand our coverage of fluid power in 2022 under the Power & Motion brand. We are pleased that each of these individuals have agreed to help guide the industry by partnering with Power & Motion.
