Director of Engineering
In his over two decades with PICA, Joe has played an indispensable role providing application support at the customer level throughout the development phase of both new and existing products. His deep understanding of customer needs from the manufacturing aspect, including mechanical, electrical, and environmental requirements has contributed to PICA’s growth and success. In addition, he provides technical support to the factory regarding manufacturability and process development as needed.
Primarily coming from a flexible printed circuit (FPC) background, Joe’s role has evolved to include rigid printed circuit boards (PCB), electronic assemblies, machined metal, and plastic molded parts as PICA’s product lines have grown. What really appeals to him is the team approach for supporting customers with Business Unit Managers in the field, Applications Engineering and Account Management Support in the U.S. office, all coupled with dynamic Engineering and Account Management Support teams in Asia for the factories. When Joe manages to slip away from work and home chores, he operates a camera at UMass Lowell sporting events and kayaks off the coast of Maine with his wife.
