18 Building Community in Europe Sanjay Huprikar is expanding his circle of friends in more ways than one. As president of IPC's organizations in Europe, India, and parts of Southeast Asia, Sanjay continues to forge new partnerships and build community among electronics manufacturers globally. IN September, for example, Sanjay gathered a cadre of CEOs and other executives from 15 of Europe's largest electron- ics manufacturers to hold a workshop on how IPC can better partner with these leading EMS providers to establish active communication channels between the trade association and manufacturers. "My role in Europe over the past three years has been singularly focused on building relationships with executives within OEMs and EMS companies," San- jay says. "Historically, we had been mainly focused on manufacturing and train- ing personnel representing our core of standards development and certification; the pivot in 2019 was to become more of a trade asso- ciation and forward-looking organization, which required a completely different model and mindset for building relationships."
