AIM Global, the trade association recognized as the worldwide authority on automatic identification and mobility, announced the election of Intermec President and CEO, Patrick J. Byrne to its Board of Directors.

As a not-for-profit industry organization, AIM Global's mission is to expand the understanding, adoption and use of data collection technology by driving international standards, providing timely, unbiased and commercial-free news and educational resources.

“As an industry association, we are seeing an increasing convergence of automatic identification and data collection technologies that is revolutionizing how business is conducted worldwide,” said AIM Global president Dan Mullen.

“Data collection technology and mobile computing touches every enterprise, from healthcare to industrial manufacturing and beyond. Mr. Byrne has the background and global expertise required to augment the current Board as they define strategic goals for continued growth in our industry.”

Mr. Byrne joined Intermec as President and Chief Executive Officer and was also elected to the company's Board of Directors in July, 2007. Byrne is a 24-year veteran of Hewlett Packard and Agilent Technologies where he held increasingly responsible positions in Research, Engineering, Marketing and General Management.
