The Association for Advanced Engineering (A3) recognized Gemma alongside two other industry members for their significant impact within the field.

Gemma’s tenure includes a board member position with A3, formerly known as the Robotics Industry Association, and two years as the president of the International Federation of Robotics. He has been with Wauseon Machine since 2022.
