Gary Tanel has been a leader in Electronics Assembly for decades. I, John Myers, first met Gary when I started recruiting SMT in 1990. He was in Management at Texas Instruments (now Raytheon). Gary hired away from IBM through me Viswam P., a leading researcher in the emerging tech BGA. Gary also has experience greenfielding an EMS which he successfully sold.
Gary has been active in SMTA at National and Local, North Texas, levels for decades. He is respected for his integrity and his support for the industry and companies.
