ALLAN J. LANDOSKY Lapeer MI 48446 248-321-7985 firstname.lastname@example.org Engineering Manager Technology & Product Development / Project Management / Analysis / Validation / International Design & Process Development / Quality / Systems Integration / Budgets / Cost Containment Utilized where changing market demands and technology required innovation, I have been consistently selected as the go-to resource for the tough jobs and premier assignments. I have led international collaborations critical to the success of modern manufacturing enterprises. I have successfully led teams and divisions into previously uncharted product innovation processes, and produced outcomes consistently beyond planned goals. Driving product planning and development to consistent technical success Building collaborative problem solving relationships Succeeding in international business initiatives Utilizing industry contacts to build revenue I hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering, an AAS in Electrical Engineering, and 22 graduate level credit hours in Metallurgical Engineering from Michigan Technological University. Subsequently, I have developed consistent skills in building and leading teams that made the attainment of all-but-impossible goals a routine occurrence. SELECTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS Validated reliability of emerging hybrid drive technology critical to new product introductions. Innovative but untested combination of new electric transmission and hybrid powertrain represented both risk and opportunity for GM. Warranty and market loss costs could be enormous if the product were not reliable from day one. Designed validation process that provided marketable proof of product superiority. Won GM Chairman’s Honors Award. nd Spearheaded international design collaborations. Fulfilled top level assignment to design generation Saturn L series drivetrain integrating German engine technology with US built transmissions. Produced product greater than the sum of its parts through integration of components designed with different and not always compatible engineering. Launched vehicle on schedule with best-in-class fuel economy. Again won GM Chairman’s Honors. Resolved “irreconcilable” technical and business cultural problems. Technical incompatibilities and differences between GM and Honda design and development presented seemingly insurmountable problems. Honda’s engine was physically too big for GM vehicle. Assembled and led design and integration team that resolved complex mechanical, electrical, engine control, fuel economy and emission management challenges. Played key role in creation of revolutionary manufacturing model. Saturn launched as the template for GM’s manufacturing future. Helped new processes take root. Personally recruited by manufacturing director to design production process and build prototype vehicle components. Completed chassis design / manufacturing plan with little prior precedent on schedule and within budget, the only Saturn development project to meet these goals. Turned engineering initiative into revenue source. Led nuclear plant inspection for GE at Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) Fukushima site. Quickly established role as GE’s communication expert with TEPCO. Leveraged growing relationship to negotiate $6.9M in long-term service contracts. CAREER SUMMARY Director of Engineering – ICI Product Design Director and Department Manager 11/11 to present. Housing and sheet goods plastic component design. Organized engineering and design activity to add quality and decrease lead times for product design and development. Engineering Specialist / Manager – Caterpillar 2010 to 2011. Currently validating tracked vehicle electric drivetrain design and development in Advanced Drivetrain Components Group. Engineering Group Manager - General Motors, 2006 to 2009. Led validation process for new hybrid powertrain products. Earned promotion to this assignment reserved for strongest performers to develop critical new technology drive systems for near future vehicle releases. Supervised 11 direct reports. Controlled $2.5M budget. Vehicle System Engineering Manager - General Motors, 2000 to 2006. Coordinated integration of mechanical and electrical powertrain systems components. Ensured product specification consistency across platforms. Powertrain Engineering Manager - Saturn Division of General Motors, 1995 to 2000. Integrated European-designed components with US-built automotive products. Facilitated first global application of common platform and powertrain design for domestic US sale. Led staff of two in US and seven in Germany. Prior: Product Development Team Leader, Saturn Division of GM. Senior Field Engineer, General Electric Mechanical and Nuclear Group. Personal Profile: I participate in tournament-level fishing, and enjoy boating and marine exploring. Additionally, I am a licensed private pilot. My community involvement includes a commitment to the work of Habitat for Humanity.
