Longtime director to leave board of Transcat

Rochester Business Journal
June 10, 2014

A director who has served on the Transcat Inc. board for more than 25 years will not seek re-election in September.

Harvey Palmer informed the company last week of his intent to retire as a director of the provider and distributor of calibration and measurement instruments business, Transcat states in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Palmer has served on the Transcat board since 1987. He is dean of engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering. Prior to his current role, he served as associate dean for graduate studies in the engineering college and department chairman of chemical engineering at the University of Rochester. Palmer began working for RIT in 2000.

Palmer’s term expires at the annual shareholder meeting in September.
