Morris Plains, NJ (PressExposure) June 20, 2013 -- The New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, Inc. (NJMEP) announces the addition of Jane Biddle to its board of directors. Board members provide strategic guidance to the organization and advocate NJMEP's mission to help small to mid-sized manufacturers become more efficient, profitable and globally competitive.
"We are very excited to appoint Jane Biddle. Between her industry expertise, passion for manufacturing and connection with leaders in the field, she will serve as a great resource for NJMEP," said Frank Wyckoff, Chairman of the NJMEP board of trustees.
Biddle brings decades of experience in the manufacturing and supply chain industries. She currently serves as President of Biddle Associates, a firm specializing in delivering strategic marketing advisory services to technology and service firms.
