Ropella Places Mechanical Test Engineer for Infineum

Posted: 10/29/2018  Category: RG Executive Search Placement

LINDEN, NEW JERSEY, October 29, 2018 – Congratulations to Don MacCrimmon, who recently accepted an offer to become Infineum’s new Mechanical Test Engineer.

Don comes to Infineum from Brake Parts, Inc.  During his 8-year tenure with Brake Parts, Don served as a Product Engineer and as a Test Engineer in the Research & Development facility, working with automotive friction material composites in both positions.  As Product Engineer he focused on formulations, raw materials, processing, performance testing, adhesives, coatings, chemical testing, physical testing, digital imagery, specifications and documentation; as Test Engineer, he analyzed characteristics such as effectiveness, noise, wear, fade, structural integrity and opposing surface compatibility.  Prior to his time at Brake Parts, Don was a Graduate Research Assistant at Southern Illinois University, where he earned his M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, with a thesis entitled “Automotive Brake Wear Debris Analysis”.  He has his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Bradley University.

Infineum is a leading fuel and lubricant additive manufacturer focused on delivering reliable performance.  They were established in January 1999 as a joint venture between ExxonMobil and Shell.

Although Ropella’s initial objective was to find a Powertrain Test Lab Team Leader for Infineum, they located a number of highly qualified professionals that Infineum wanted to bring onto their team, including Shahzeb Sayeedi, who accepted the Powertrain Test Lab Team Leader position, and Jacob Goodale, who accepted an Engineering position.  The next step in this fruitful business partnership will be recruiting a Technical Sales Account Manager.
