In 1974 he joined Electronic Associates Ltd. in Toronto, which in 1975 became Sentrol Systems, and was later purchased by Valmet Automation (now Metso Automation). Initially an R&D controls engineer he progressed through several positions culminating in the director of applications development position. He then moved into his current position in the marketing area.
