Passionate about quality practices and results, Muegge's vast experience in the localization industry makes him a strong and valued contributor.

    "I'm honored to be involved in such a wonderful opportunity. ASTM represents the very best of quality assurance through its preventative measures," says Muegge, "To be able to participate from the initial stages in something that will positively resonate within the industry is a great honor and challenge.
