About My Job
As an Engineering Director, I make sure we satisfy customer requirements, while meeting demand and maximizing profitability. I have always operated under the premise that engineering should lead a company forward in all activities. Management support of these efforts is very prevalent with this company. I direct the daily engineering activities so we can create processes that are beneficial and cost effective for the customer/company. Part of my job is to support the goals of the Company by assigning the correct resources to strategic and continuous improvement projects which will keep us in the forefront of the industry.
At age twenty-two, I taught high school machine shop. I worked on a project for the NASA swimming pool that simulates the shuttle arm and is used for astronaut training. I’ve hiked all 48 of the 4,000 footers in New Hampshire.
