        Nigel Benn is the Director of the ASM Materials Solutions Network, an innovative business
offering from the leading Materials information society. This business unit seeks to harness the
extensive capabilities of the ASM membership to deliver materials-centric solutions to industry,
and help to bridge the growing skills gap which is currently challenging many different
companies. Focused on high quality solutions, streamlined execution and offering scalable
resource, this new solution to securing materials expertise is available with industry-specific
knowledge in many areas.
       In recent times, we have observed that the pace at which professionals are leaving the industry
through retirement and natural attrition is significantly higher than that at which new
professionals are qualifying and entering industry. When this is overlaid with the current
employment situation, and the gathering rate of new materials developments, a “perfect storm”
scenario can be seen.
       To address this, ASM International have formed the Materials Solutions Network to provide
variable cost, on-demand rapidly deployed expert resources, provided by a pool of pre-qualified
Provider Members, drawn from our membership.
       The outline of this presentation will be to describe this process, and how ASM are helping
companies with a unique solution to sourcing their materials expertise.
