In this issue of the Patti Perspective we are putting the spotlight on Senior Electrical Engineer, Terrance Brinkley. This coming May, Terrance will have been with Patti Engineering for the past 17 years! The knowledge and expertise he has gained in those 17 years has become invaluable to both our clients and the team here at Patti Engineering.
“Terrance is a very good engineer. What stands out is his strength in teaching and molding younger engineers.” said Sam Hoff, CEO of Patti Engineering. “Thanks in part to Terrance, our new hires get up to speed quicker, making our company stronger”
“Terrance is patient and always willing to find time to sit down to explain the whys and the hows so you really understand it,” said Connie Sadro, one of the engineers who has benefitted from Terrance’s expertise. “With so much experience, he either knows the answer or knows exactly who would.”
A Michigan native, Terrance was born and raised in Pontiac, MI. He then went on to attend Michigan State University from 1997-2003 where he completed Bachelor’s degrees in both Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering.
Following graduation, Terrance joined the team here at Patti Engineering and has been with us ever since. He was first featured in the Patti Perspective Spotlight back in 2013! You can read the vintage version here. Terrance has been an integral part of our success in several major projects. Most recently, he’s pioneered a couple of projects utilizing The Edge, as we discussed in our feature article this month.
“Terrance is always looking to stay on the forefront of technology. Currently, he is helping our clients tie the manufacturing floor to the upper level servers or The Cloud.” said Hoff.
When asked what he likes best about working with Patti Engineering, Terrance noted enjoying a flexible schedule and wide variety of projects.
Terrance now resides in West Bloomfield, MI where he lives with his wife of six years, Shelley and their 5-year-old daughter Maya. In his free time, Terrance enjoys traveling and playing the bass guitar.
