The American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) has appointed Thomas G. Loughlin '83 managing director, engineering. His responsibilities include oversight of ASME's new media department, meetings and exhibits, engineering programs, and the Center for Research and Technology, as well as technical publishing, Mechanical Engineering magazine, and ASME News.

Loughlin joined ASME in 1993 as director of member services. In 1997 he became the managing director of member affairs and last year he assumed responsibility for ASME's electronic resources activities as managing director, special projects.

A mechanical engineering graduate, Loughlin had held several positions in industry, beginning as a product engineer and moving into product and project management. Working for the Corbin and Russwin companies, he received five patents related to physical security products.

Loughlin, whose father, Robert Loughlin '53, and grandfather, Julius Naab '17, also attended Lafayette, stays in touch with Richard Merz, associate professor of mechanical engineering. “Dick is active in ASME. He was a regional vice president, and he's been very supportive,” says Loughlin.
