Having earned Associate degrees that combined physics, calculus, and chemistry — and with experience managing restaurants throughout college— Tony began his supply chain career as a system design and integration installer (because he could lift 70 pounds and read blueprints, as well as pass the drug test, he notes). That launched him on a broad-ranging path through nearly three decades of design, implementation, and management of large-scale material handling equipment and high-speed automation systems. With a diverse background that includes welding expertise, sales engineering, project management, technical support, and workforce training and development, Tony is extremely adept at risk mitigation. This allows him to keep projects on-track while surpassing customer expectations.
