"The opportunities I will have to strengthen my leadership skills as part of the program will help me provide the highest level of service to Exponent clients for years to come."

Dr. Hollenbach has been active within ASME as a part of the International Gas Turbine Institute (IGTI), presenting multiple papers at Turbo Expo Conferences. He has served on the aircraft engine, education, and student advisory committees; reviewed draft papers; and received the Turbo Expo Early Career Engineer Awards, as well as the Young Engineer Turbo Expo Program Award.

According to the ASME, the ECLIPSE program is part of a commitment to investing in the careers of high-potential early career members. It promotes and recognizes the value of long-term leadership development and diversity among its members.
