Phoenix Contract

With over 15 years of experience in industrial automation, with a focus on IoT/ IIoT, Industry 4.0, Open Automation, Industrial Networking, & Cybersecurity I have been able to accomplish some amazing things. Currently, I head the automation business for Phoenix Contact USA as the Director of Product Marketing - Automation.

On top of my daily responsibilities of leading Marketing, Engineering, and Sales teams, my thought leadership can be seen across many IoT/ IIoT collaboration and educational platforms including here on LinkedIn. In 2021 & 2022 I was named in the “whos who” for IIoT by Onalytica, I am a Co-Founder of the Industry 4.0 Club, an Advisory Board Member of IIoT World, and a frequent podcast guest (aspiring Podcast Host).
