Superior Technical Ceramics Hires Technology Director

Kristen H. Brosnan, Ph.D

Superior Technical Ceramics (STC), a manufacturer of technical ceramics, has announced that Dr. Kristen H. Brosnan has joined the company as Technology Director. Dr. Brosnan joins STC from General Electric, where she most recently served as Technology Manager for Metals and Ceramics at GE Research, where she concentrated on high temperature materials solutions for extreme environments.

"We are delighted to welcome Kristen to our team, and look forward to utilizing her considerable expertise and experience in the development and application of technical ceramic material solutions for our national and international clientele in their demanding applications," said Peter Morten, CEO of STC. "We know Kristen's background and experience is a great fit for the pioneering work we are doing across a host of industry sectors. Her leadership skills in engineering will be greatly leveraged for enhanced project execution."

Dr. Brosnan joins STC as the firm continues to invest in its materials expertise, talent and equipment capability, an investment pattern accelerated by the firm's recent acquisition by Boston-based venture capital firm Artemis Partners.

Dr. Brosnan began her career at General Electric after completing her Ph.D. and Master of Science degrees at Pennsylvania State University. While at GE, she was promoted through a series of diverse roles, including materials scientist, ceramics laboratory manager and technology manager. She also served as the principal investigator for an ARPA-E project related to narrow body aircraft auxiliary power units. She currently serves on the board of directors for the Materials Research Society. She holds numerous patents for manufacturing methods related to high temperature materials and thermal barrier coatings.
