SAE International Manager Honored With Staff Award

WARRENDALE, Pa., Aug. 18, 2006 - The legacy of Joe Gilbert, former SAE International Executive Vice President, lives on through an award reinstated in his memory.

The Joe Gilbert Award is an honor given by staff members to staff members who demonstrate Gilbert's positive professionalism in the workplace.  Gilbert was SAE International’s third executive vice president and served from 1960-1985. When Gilbert died in January of this year, the award was brought back after a 12-year absence.

This year's recipient is Cindy Brack, a production manager at SAE International.  She received the award during a staff meeting at the world headquarters in Warrendale, Pa.

"The Joe Gilbert Award acknowledges the importance of displaying interest in people as individuals and treating them with dignity and respect," Raymond A. Morris, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of SAE International, said.  "Cindy exemplifies this attitude and has been a wonderful role model for all of us at SAE International."

Brack began her career at SAE International more than 28 years ago, and was named to her current position in 2003.  She is a graduate of Mars Area High School and resides in Cranberry Township, Pa.
