Asphahani joins QuesTek Innovations

Dr. Aziz Asphahani of Ottawa joined QuesTek Innovations LLC, Evanston, as the new chief executive officer effective July 1.
He will lead the company’s efforts in growth and business development. Asphahani has a background in both metallurgy and business, having acted as director of technology/R&D at Cabot Corp., vice president of sales and marketing at Haynes International, and president at both CABVAL and Carus Chemical Co.
QuesTek designs, develops and commercializes new high performance materials, such as Ferrium  S53, which was designed for the U.S. Air Force as a more corrosion-resistant alternative to incumbent ultra high strength steels that require toxic cadmium coatings. Its Ferrium  C61 and C64 alloys are being evaluated under Army-funded programs as next generation rotor shaft and transmission gear steels by Boeing and by Bell Helicopter.
Asphahani also has been active in a number of professional organizations, including having served as president of ASM International, ASM Foundation chairman, director of NACE, and member of the American Chemistry Council board of directors.
Asphahani holds a diplome ingenieur-physics from Ecole Centrale de Paris as well as a doctoral degree in materials science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He is an expert in alloy development and metallic corrosion, has been awarded eight patents and has authored more than 65 papers on high alloys and corrosion control throughout his career.
