AGMA Presents Chairman’s Award At Annual Meeting


May 2, 2018, Alexandria, VA—The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) presented Jack Masseth of Meritor, Inc., with the AGMA Chairman's award during the AGMA/ABMA Annual Meeting in Naples, Florida last week. This award is presented to a recipient that has contributed greatly to the gear industry and has gone above and beyond the call of duty to support innovation and advancement through AGMA.  

Masseth graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in Mechanical Engineering and began his career at The Gleason Works. After 13 years of applications engineering he moved to Dana in Fort Wayne, Indiana and work for 14 years as Chief Engineer, Gear Engineering and Development. From there he moved to American Axle and Manufacturing and then to his current position at Meritor.

“Jack is a great example of what this award represents,” said James Bregi, Chairman of the AGMA Board of Directors. “His dedication to the gear industry and leadership throughout the years to AGMA is something we all hope to strive for.”

Masseth is an active member on the Vehicle Gearing Committee, Gear Efficiency Committee, the Gear Accuracy Committee and the Emerging Technology Committee. Jack was also instrumental in helping AGMA begin the Strategic Resource Netowrk or SRN. This group has played an important part in attracting new leaders to AGMA.
