CDP Class of 1990 – 1993
Penn State University
B.S. Quantitative Business Analysis

JeffThis device is manufactured at the facility where I did my third CDP rotation. It’s a CACTUS® membrane air dryer. Used in conjunction with coalescing filters, it lowers the dew point of compressed air to prevent condensation.

I entered college with a goal of becoming an engineer. When I realized I wasn’t interested in that discipline, I switched majors and focused on Business and IT technology.

During my first CDP assignment, I remotely supported manufacturing resource planning systems for the company’s chemical facilities. I also did some programming.

Next, I worked at a manufacturing facility. While there, I learned a valuable lesson about IT priorities from the customer’s perspective. It was a lesson I never forgot: over the years, it’s helped me to become a better partner in my customers’ success.

For my last assignment, I supported a newly acquired manufacturing facility. When I arrived, the employees had nothing. I had to start from scratch: from basic rewiring to installing new PCs, servers, printers, and user software, to implementing SAP enterprise resource planning software. It was a challenge, to say the least.

When the company decided to install SAP worldwide, I was able to take advantage of earlier experience and became part of the implementation team. I now work in IT Innovation and Architecture, where I manage the overall application architecture and portfolio.
