Hoppe, Anewenter Receive Prestigious AMUG President's AwardMay 26, 2021
From AMUG 2021...The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) bestowed its President's Award to two individuals, Terry Hoppe and Vince Anewenter. Only 10 individuals have received this prestigious award over its 33-year history.
Hoppe, formerly Stratasys' director of North American applications team, received the award posthumously. In part, AMUG's President's Award recognized Hoppe's years of service in the AM industry, yet it primarily recognized his role in transitioning AMUG from a supplier-specific users group to one that embraces AM users of all technologies.
"We invited Terry as a guest of our event so that he could experience what we were trying to do,” recalls Gary Rabinovitz, AMUG chair. “From that exposure, he became a believer and advocate. Terry took that conviction back to Stratasys and championed the AMUG way.”
