Tom Ricciardelli received a BS and MS in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 1985 and an MBA from the Sloan School of Management in 1991. In 1993, he founded SelecTech with the mission of creating valuable products from recycled materials. He has over 20 years experience with developing unique polymer blends to meet demanding technical requirements and holds several patents for products and processes using recycled materials. He was the first to conceive of and develop an adhesive-free, interlocking static-control flooring system which paved the way for the StaticStop line of industry-leading ESD flooring products.
With this product, he was flung headlong into the ESD industry and joined the EOS/ESD Association in 2013 to become more involved in the industry and better understand the full needs of his customers. He is now the chair of WG 7 and a member of WG19, WG97, and the Marketing Communications committees. "While I have a strong engineering background with degrees in chemical engineering, my knowledge of electronics and ESD was certainly limited. Being involved in the EOS/ESD Association, through the committees, the available training information, and generous support from other members, I’ve learned a vast amount about ESD and its control. I particularly enjoy networking with the other members, working with them on the committees, and having a little fun during the free time."
Tom is married to Linda and has three sons, Andrew (22), Clark (20), and James (18). Tom enjoys playing hockey in his Friday morning hockey group, and most anything outdoors, particularly, hiking, biking, skiing, running, and kayaking. Living in the Boston area with its strong sports culture, he also loves watching the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and Bruins.
