Michael is our Motor Lab Coordinator. He schedules day-to-day operations of the lab, works with clients to develop test plans (standard and custom), writes proposals and quotes, oversees lab technicians, schedules all shipping of equipment to and from AE (sometimes international), and writes technical and non-technical reports. He is the operational back bone to all things motor lab! “An invaluable “resource” that we oftentimes take for granted,” is Michael’s definition of energy. If Michael is not in the lab, you can find him enjoying outdoor activities such as golf, fishing, camping and sports. He leads AE’s annual NCAA March Madness bracket pool and knows more about basketball than he lets on!
