Chief Knowledge Officer,
AMT – Association For Manufacturing Technology
Patrick W. McGibbon previously served as AMT’s Vice President of Strategic Analytics. In this role, he oversees the production of benchmarking surveys for manufacturing technology, the development and maintenance of AMT members’ market intelligence database and is responsible for AMT’s membership and member services programs. He leads a team of AMT analysts, research specialists and economists in providing analysis of the global manufacturing technology markets and producing the estimates of market activity in discrete product markets.
Mr. McGibbon joined AMT in this role in 1992 after working at the U.S. Department of Commerce for five years. There he served as an industry analyst providing insight, trade agreements, trade shows and special trade promotion programs such as the U.S. – Japan Cooperation Program. The US-JCP was a market access program introduced to identify and overcome non-tariff barriers to U.S. exports to Japan. He mentored three of the 25 companies in the program, which proved to be highly successful in providing those 25 companies access to the Japanese market and identifying obstacles for the U.S. and Japanese governments to resolve.
Mr. McGibbon was the Assistant Director of the National Machine Tool Builders’ Association (NMTBA) Statistical Department prior to joining the Commerce Department. NMTBA was the predecessor to AMT. Pat currently serves on the Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Automotive and Capital Goods issues (ITAC 2) as an advisor on international trade issues.
