Talking Product Design with a Stanley Black and Decker Engineering Manager – Terry Gonzales - Ep 28
Terry Gonzales is currently an Engineering Manager with Stanley Black and Decker in Southington Connecticut with hand tool and auto mechanic group. Terry was my first boss at my first job out of college. That was at United Pet Group in Blacksburg, VA (we called it Tetra because that was the main brand).
It was great catching up with Terry. We hadn’t really talked for a while in years. Both of our careers have gone different directions since our Tetra days. While I have gone the entrepreneur route, he has done a few different things and we discuss it. He started out in product design, then worked as sales engineer, then as a manufacturing engineer and now he has come full circle back to his passion, product design.
This is a great episode for anyone thinking about engineering as a career. You get a great feel for what you can do in the working world.
And of course, we talk about some 3D printing!
