Einstein’s Alley, the non-profit economic development initiative for central New Jersey, has added two new members to its board: Jay K. Davis, near right, project executive at Turner Construction, and Pascal Seradarian, former CEO of Hutchinson Industries. They replace outgoing trustees Douglas W. Schoenberger, vice president of corporate responsibility at Verizon New Jersey, and Kenneth Traub, former CEO of American Bank Holographics.
Davis has just led a team that completed Princeton University’s Frick Chemistry Building, a $300+ million green building for teaching and research. His previous project was the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, in Loudon County, Virginia, a state-of-the-art biomedical research facility. A graduate of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Davis has been involved with many academic, pharmaceutical, and life sciences projects at Turner Construction.
Seradarian founded the Trenton-based Hutchinson Industries in 1983, growing the company to seven operating facilities in Trenton employing over 400 people, 125 people in Buffalo, NY, two manufacturing plants in France and Germany, as well as sales offices in France, Germany, Italy, and England. All of the seven sites in Trenton were former derelict properties redeveloped as modern manufacturing facilities.
Hutchinson is now an industry leader in the design and manufacture of enhanced mobility components. The firm is a leading wheel supplier to the U.S. Military.
Seradarian earned degrees in chemical engineering from University of Besancon-France and from the Institute of Rubber IFC in Paris. He holds several U.S. patents.
Continuing members of the Einstein’s Alley board are Thomas Bracken, president of the NJ Chamber of Commerce; Robert Giordano, president, RFG Inc. and former research chief at Fort Monmouth; Herbert Greenberg, president and CEO of Caliper Corporation; Karen A. Jezierny, Princeton University’s director of public affairs; Stephen E. Morgan, CEO American Clean Energy and former president of JCPL First Energy; Marguerite L. Mount, CPA and managing director of The Mercadien Group; Louis P. Wagman, Technology Management Associates and entrepreneur-in-residence at the NJIT Enterprise Development Center; and Richard C. Woodbridge, patent attorney at Fox Rothschild LLP.
Richard J. Pinto, Princeton managing shareholder at Stevens and Lee P.C., is the corporate secretary. Executive Director Katherine Kish, president of Market Entry Inc., serves as an ex-officio member of the Board.
