1) What was your child­hood like?

Typical Midwestern family, Mom and Dad, older brother. Grew up in the 70s without helmets, video games or seat belts.  Very large extended family, grand­par­ents, great grand­par­ents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I loved our old house and the concept of entre­pre­neurship. I applied for a patent on a device which detected base­ment floo­ding in High School, it never deve­loped.

2) Who was a hero to you growing up? Why?

My father. He was a self-made man. He perse­vered in busi­ness and more import­antly in living life.

3) What are your hobbies?

Being a part of my two daugh­ters’ lives, fitness, golf, and playing guitar.

4) How did you end up in metro­logy? Did you go to school for it?

I went to school for busi­ness, sales and marke­ting. I started in metro­logy with Brown and Sharpe, one of the oldest family held compa­nies, in 1997. I managed a sales region in the Chicago region.

6) What are your roles and respon­si­bi­li­ties with API?

I am the Director of Busi­ness Deve­lo­p­ment. My respon­si­bi­li­ties are growth of busi­ness in Robotic Metro­logy Solu­tions (RMS) and Smart Factory Inspec­tion Systems (SFIS) and conti­nuing a culture of customer-centric service and solu­tions.

7) What sets API apart from other metro­logy compa­nies in your mind?

API is unique among metro­logy suppliers because many of the conglo­me­rates are publicly held with a focus on profit, whereas API is focused on their custo­mers and inno­va­tion.

8) What API Product or Service are you most excited to tell people about?

API has one of the stron­gest tech­nical Metro­logy Service orga­niz­a­tions in the world.  We have a depth of appli­ca­tions which trans­late into one of the best tech­nical sales orga­niz­a­tions in the market.

API has some very exci­ting tech­no­lo­gies, which will be disrup­tive to the market. That is exci­ting!

10) What does “Nothing Beyond Measure” mean to you? 

“Nothing Beyond” extends to infi­nity, and “Measure” is our focus. API has always been infi­ni­tely inno­vating in the metro­logy world.
