The MICPA announced yesterday the appointment of Robert Doyle as the association’s next President and CEO, following a meet-and-greet with MICPA staff on Monday morning.

Bob was the unanimous selection by our Board of Directors, following a very intense search process that looked at hundreds of applicants. He is a passionate, highly experienced, and successful leader who has directed advocacy, membership, marketing and communications efforts for the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) headquartered in Ann Arbor, as well as the day-to-day operations of the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) and A3 Mexico.

After completing a B.S. in environmental engineering at Michigan Technological University, Bob went on to receive an M.S. in engineering science – management of technology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an M.A. in public relations and organizational communications from Wayne State University.

Born and raised in Michigan, Bob resides in Farmington with his wife Sara and their children, Landon (2nd grade) and Connor (kindergarten). Sara and Bob spend much of their free time at hockey rinks and baseball fields supporting their boys’ love of sports, in fact Bob is a coach for both sons’ little league baseball teams.

Following a five-week strategic transition plan, with Peggy who is retiring March 31, Bob will officially step into the President and CEO role on April 1.

A huge thank you to all the members of the MICPA Search Committee – David Echelbarger, Frank Maselli, Michelle Randall, Ron Edmonds, Rob Johnson, Alan Young – skillfully chaired by past Board Chair, Stephanie Bergeron as well as Jeff Supina of Stanton Chase, Liz Aitken, HR Consultant to the MICPA and past Board Chair, Randy Paschke.  Their leadership, attention to detail and countless hours of service to this process serve as a testament to their passion and dedication to our mission.

Please welcome and get to know Bob over the coming months and year. Thank you for your continued support and membership in the MICPA.
