T. M. Kubiak For his dedication and many contributions to the quality field, Kubiak was named 2015 Quality Professional of the Year. William Israel hired T.M. Kubiak more than 30 years ago and says it was one of the best hires he's ever made. Although Kubiak had a great resume, he was even better in person, and he only exceeded expectations from there. Israel was managing a team of about 25 engineers when he met Kubiak, but says he was easy to remember. He was honest, dedicated and always got things done. He never needed help on projects, and if you gave something to him, you knew he would get it done. People went to him for help. He describes him as "Absolutely dedicated. About as true a professional as I have ever seen. Very focused on his responsibilities-so focused, you almost had to shake him to get his attention." This dedication has served Kubiak well throughout his career. His gifts to the quality industry have been great. He's shared his knowledge through his books, countless articles, courses and consulting work. He's been a member of ASQ since 1983, and throughout his long career he's reviewed over 350 books, papers, and mixed media for ASQ. In addition, he's no stranger to awards. While at Honeywell, he helped two divisions receive state quality awards. This time, it's time to honor Kubiak himself. TQS The 2015 Professional of the Year At a Glance T. M.
