Briefly What Happened Since Leaving School
My career included 22 years at Westinghouse Defense
Electronics in Baltimore where I started as an engineering aide and worked
my way up through the engineering ranks as a design engineer and then was
promoted to Test Manager, Manufacturing Program Manager, Division
Materials Manager, and
Program Manager. I worked on products as varied as the tv camera that was
used on the Apollo moon missions, radar for the F4 and F16 fighter jets,
radar for the Awacs early-warning airaircraft, and numerous air defense
systems. I then went to Allied Signal Communications Division where I held
positions as Quality Engineering Manager, Purchasing Manager, and Program
Manager. I was involved in products as varied as the fuze for the Patriot
Missile, and various communications and avionics products. I then went to
Allied Signal Microelectronics facility in Columbia where I was Manager of
Materiel and then Business Manager. There we produced complex integrated
circuits for various electronic products. After leaving Allied Signal, I
took a position as Material Manager for United Defense at Letterkenny Army
Depot in Chambersburg PA. At United Defense we manufactured the Paladin
Howitzer for the Army. In 1996, I moved to Redmond Washington where I
became General Manager of Universal Avionics Manufacturing division.
During this period of my career I was responsible for building a 57,000 sq
foot electronic manufacturing facility in Tucson Arizona. Since leaving
Universal Avionics I have been a manager and a CEO of two contract
manufacturing companies. I am currently President of Applied Technical
Services, a $40 million per year electronics manufacturing company in
Bothell Washington. I am responsible for this facility as well as opening
new manufacturing facility in Hermosillo Mexico in April of 2004.
My family includes my wife Debby, a son Keith and his wife Suzette
living near Baltimore, a son Joshua "Josh" and a daughter Rebecca "Becky"
in Redmond WA, a son Ryan living in Mill Creek WA and a daughter Lacy
Wisner living in Auburn WA.
I am honored to have grown up in Brunswick and believe that the influences
of Brunswick and my class mates of Brunswick schools have had a
impact on who I am and the successes I have had in my life. I do miss
those innocent years of my youth in Brunswick.
