My Thoughts on ACE, after 18 Years

I grew up in Connecticut, just outside of New Milford and a few minutes north of Danbury. In 1999 I decided to attend the University of Delaware because I knew I wanted to be a chemical engineer. Fast forward to the winter of my senior year and I was interviewing for positions at companies that made products that we use every day. It was then that a small company, based right near the University of Delaware caught my attention during an on-campus interview. They offered the opportunity to work with a variety of automation technologies and for a variety of customers. I joined Applied Control Engineering in the summer of 2003 and as I approach 20 years with the company it is amazing to think about how my choices have really brought me full-circle and eventually led me to my family.
