CMS WorldGroup Director of Engineering and Design Services August 2008 - January 2023

I am a Private Contractor to this company. Charles Ferrer CEO welcomed me on board his company in August of 2008 and is allowing me to hold a position within his company simultaneously with additional independent contracts and jobs outside his company. I administrate the Design and Development of products from Inventors who wish to prototype and then produce various products in China. After the prototype design is approved by the customer, the customer will obtain Container Loads of his new design. One of my most successful designs was a therapeutic exercise machine for range of motion. Orthopedic Boot for patients with sprains or breaks was also designed in three sizes. This was a very fun project. Mouth Guards for a Martial Arts Sport was also developed. I also designed an Athletic Shoe for Martial Arts Practice. Developed a Cold Therapy Device for post Op Knee joints. The Design tasks for CMS have been VERY Interesting and productive. The CMS Group can be defined as a NINJA style Product Development Group. This Work has been wonderful because of the fact that it has been "ongoing" for a very long time. Many companies are unable to sustain Design Engineers like myself because we DONT Work Cheap!

Developed Water Remediation Equipment. Worked on trailers 20 ft and 40ft with integrated equipment (using electrocoagulation) to process fraking oil and gas well water. The Team then redesigned the fraking trailers to process oil and gas water cleaning aparatus that did not use electrocoagulation. The same equipment was then redesigned to work in cleaning the water at a Shrimp Farm in Florida. Worked with a company in France to develop machinery to produce a mild cleaning solution using membrane film technology. Participated in multiple bidding operations for products as popular as the European Company called Let Pizza. The range of products at Jabil Integrated Portable Solutions was vast and interesting. Jabil is a very Inovative and Forward looking company. Jabil has a state of the art Management system. I loved this assignment. Hats off to the owners of Jabil Corp.
