Southampton, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/22/2014 -- Timothy M. Kelly, a noted telemetry engineering consultant to Fortune 500 firms and former sales executive for an international manufacturer of telemetry systems, has been named Engineering Manager of IMET Corporation, electronic product development and PCB assembly specialists.
In announcing the appointment, CEO Tom Krol disclosed his almost 20-year personal friendship with Kelly, which began when they met at his first job at Aydin Vector in the early nineties. “Kelly’s duties will fully involve his administrative as well as his obvious engineering skills in overseeing our staff of seven highly skilled engineers who until now have had scant leadership,” the CEO stated.
Krol admitted his pursuit of Kelly began almost a year ago, when a major influx of incoming purchase orders for product development and PCB assembly projects forced him to declare an unprecedented 90-day moratorium in responding to RFQs. “The resulting loss of business made me realize the need for a take-charge guy like Tim,” the CEO stated.
Kelly’s background includes a consultancy to the telemetry industry, serving clients that included Lockheed, Boeing, Raytheon, Sikorsky and other high-profile companies. He advised each of them on equipment choices and oversaw product development and PCB assembly, as well as installation and training of flight recorders, PCM encoders and system design hardware. Previously, he was a regional sales manager for Zodiac Data Systems, a French manufacturer of telemetry systems. His territory covered northeastern US and all of Canada. A native of Philadelphia, Kelly received his MEE degree from Drexel University.
