If you’ve ever been on a train pulled by a GE locomotive, chances are that Manoj Shah’s ideas were working somewhere deep inside its steel belly. Over the last three decades, the GE engineer came up with 44 patents and many other innovations that lowered the cost and gave more muscle to electric motors for the wheels of massive mining trucks, electric pumps for deep oil and gas wells, aircraft power generators, and other equipment.
On today’s jobcast you’ll meet Ed Hall, Senior General Manager, Mechanical Technologies, GE Transportation, and Eric Dillen, Dual Fuel Program Leader with GE Transportation. Both Ed and Eric are based in Erie, PA.
As a manager for GE Transportation, Bob Wetzel spent five months last year out of the country, mostly in China. His job has taken him to six continents. Despite his lack of time in Brevard County, the married father of one daughter still finds time to donate his efforts to various charitable organizations in the area. He’s been asked to be on numerous boards, but because his travel schedule is so demanding, he is careful about where he volunteers.
