These debriefings supported reports provided to Jack Welch. Additional selected accomplishments in previous GE roles • GE Drives systems sought to introduce new-to-the-world variable speed compressor drives to Trane and looked to Corporate R&D to develop new technologies and approaches to meet their business objective. Successfully supported this objective as follows: • Invented and developed a cost effective High-Voltage IC process that supported a 10X component count reduction coupled with a new innovative drive topology within 24 months. Received Corporate R&D’s highest and most recognized award (Dushman award) and top 100 Innovation awards from Science Digest for the integration of this HVIC technology into the worlds first smart motor control module. • Successfully led technology and development activities leading to products for GE Fanuc’s Genius IO product line and IBM’s PS1 computer power supply function.
