John Krisko, AMT’s longtime Director – Exhibitions, was honored at a retirement dinner in Chicago on Sept. 12 during IMTS. More than 75 of John’s business associates, AMT members and staff saluted John’s 40-year career in the manufacturing industry. John’s career began at Warner & Swasey Company in Cleveland, Ohio. After many years there, John worked at other companies in the Cleveland area before relocating to Virginia in 2000 to take over the Director – Exhibitions post at AMT. John’s extraordinary sense of humor was appreciated by exhibitors and coworkers alike; and he plans to return to Cleveland, following in the footsteps of LeBron James. John’s final day at AMT was celebrated with a farewell luncheon and a good luck send-off by the AMT staff.

Effective Monday, Sept. 29, Mark Kennedy assumed the role of Director – Exhibition Sales. Mark has been with AMT for 3 years working with the MTInsight team and prior to that has extensive experience working with IMTS exhibitors in the role of registration company liaison.
