Brief biography - speech introduction

Alex McEachern is well known worldwide for his cheerful, thought-provoking speeches on electric power quality.

Active in writing and approving international power standards, Alex is the chairman of the IEC Working Group that sets the standard for power quality instruments, and the Chair of voltage sag standard for the semiconductor industry, SEMI F47. He is Fellow -- the highest possible member -- of the IEEE.

He is an inventive fellow, too, with 30 U.S. patents awarded so far.

But among all his accomplishments, McEachern is proudest of the fact that companies that he has created have been responsible for over 3,000 man-years of employment.
