Cliff brings nearly 30 years of experience in the automation and controls industry. Cliff started his career as a Field Engineer for Westinghouse Electric, setting the foundation for his process automation and distributed control system (DCS) experience. Cliff had an opportunity to become part owner of an integration company based on his knowledge of the WDPF system, transitioning to this role where he gained experience on a diverse variety of systems as well as business acumen.
