Mr. Frank T. Curtin

Frank CurtinFrank Curtin has extensive managerial experience in global industrial business operations and strategy. His experience spans several different fields including: design and manufacturing, automation, human resources, inventory control, profitability, plant consolidation, expansion and modernization, just to name a few. Frank held managerial positions in several prestigious companies including General Electric, Cincinnati Milacron, Ingersoll Milling Machine Company, and Brown and Sharpe.

After retiring from B&S in 2000, Frank joined the Board of Ashworth Bros., Inc, a privately owned company producing conveyor belts for the global food industry, with manufacturing facilities in the USA and in Holland. In October 2001 he became President and CEO, and retired from the company in October 2006.

This is what Frank has to say about the IEP: “Over my fifty year career in business, I have seen many changes in technology used in the manufacturing process, and in management of the business process itself. Students today find it hard to imagine life without the computer. (So do I!) The world itself has become much smaller, and having spent seventeen years living and managing American owned businesses in Europe and Asia, I will attest to the incredible advantage our IEP graduates have in the ultra competitive environment of today and tomorrow.”
