Employee Spotlight - Brian Bentrim, Vice President, PEM® New Product Development & Product Engineering
You’ve been a PennEngineering® team member since 1996. How has your work evolved since then ?
When I started at PennEngineering®, I worked on developing an internal system to design, tool, and price out product. This exposed me to all aspects of product development – from production and application usage to costing. I soon moved into an Applications Engineering role, gravitating to projects that had complex design challenges. This naturally led me to New Product Development.
