Charlotte Hill '77

2013 Silver and Gold Award Recipient

Charlotte Hill earned a Bachelor of Science in Bacteriology in 1976 and another BS in Chemistry in 1977 from the University of Idaho.

Out of college, Hill worked as an analytical chemist for the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory until 1979. She has also worked for IBM, Electronics & Space Corp. and Rantec Microwave & Electronics, Inc.

Since 2001, Hill has been the president and CEO of Georg Fischer Signet, of El Monte, Calif., a subsidiary of the Switzerland-based George Fischer Corporation. Georg Fischer Signet is a global leader in the machining technology, automotive and piping industries.

Hill has worked with GF Signet since 1996, serving in two vice president positions before becoming president.
Under Hill’s leadership, the company has focused on enhancing quality and expanding its product line. An expansion was recently completed in 2011 into a recently renovated building, significantly increasing the company’s capacity. This facility also uses the latest in green technology.

Hill is active in many professional organizations, including the Measurement, Control, and Automation Association since 2005. She also has been chairman for the trade association of manufacturers of process controls and field measurement and analysis.

“Hill possesses a keen mind and probing intellect that allow her to gather and process information and nuances and bring a wealth of knowledge and insight into virtually any discussion and decision-making process,” said Cynthia A. Esher, MCAA president.

Hill served on MCAA from 2005-2009, a time when Esher said economic woes were taking a toll on the process control industry.

“Under her leadership, MCAA was able to weather the storm,” she said.
