Albright Technologies' President to Receive EMERGE Award

After recently being named President of Albright Technologies, Bob
Waitt will be receiving an EMERGE Award this week. This award is given to 10 young professionals who work in North Central Massachusetts for their outstanding work professionally and in the community. 
Each nominee was scored by a small selection committee on his or her career history and trajectory, community involvement, community dedication and recognition by others.

Bob Waitt began his career at Albright Technologies at the age of 15, working part time in the founder's garage in Sterling. After receiving his B.S. in electrical engineering from Boston University in 2006, he was offered a full-time position at Albright and since then has held every position in the company including: machinist, molder, project engineer and operations manager. In 2008, Bob was promoted to VP of business development and in January 2013, when the previous president/CEO retired, Bob was appointed the new president/CEO at the age of 28. 
The awards will be officially conferred at the EMERGE Awards Ceremony on Thursday at Fitchburg State University. The event will be hosted by Mayor Lisa Wong, as one of the area's most prominent young professionals, and Robert Antonucci, president of Fitchburg State University.

Life Sciences Intern Challenge Leads to Significant Discoveries


Massachusetts graduate student Brian Dutra recently won first place at an international engineering competition for his research on acoustics in the bloodstream. Applications of his research include the detection of cancer cells in the bloodstream, filtering contaminants out of polluted water, and separating algae-based biofuels from biomass.


Dutra performed his groundbreaking research as an intern at a local company, FloDesign Sonics, in Wilbraham, Mass. He completed his internship through the  Massachusetts Life Sciences Centers (MLSC) Internship Challenge program.


The Challenge provides students and recent college graduates with hands-on work experience through paid internships at life sciences companies across the state.


AIM members like Albright Technologies of Leominster, Mass., have participated. Since 2010, Albright Technologies has hired seven interns subsidized by the MLSC.


"Since first participating in the Internship Challenge, we have permanently hired two of our interns as Project Managers," said Bob Waitt, President of Albright Technologies.


"All three of our engineers started at Albright as interns, two of them as part of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Internship Challenge. Their hard work and dedication has contributed to 31 percent growth since 2011," Waitt said.
