Bernd joined Synapse in 2019 as a Senior Program Manager. He has several decades experience in product development in consumer electronics and industrial applications. He has led product realization teams from initial design concepts to high volume manufacturing in domestic and international locations. His diverse portfolio includes development of game controllers, PC peripherals, consumer audio, satellite communication terminals, railroad safety systems, bar code readers, a cell phone based gaming system, and various RF systems.
Bernd loves the teamwork aspect of program management. To him, few things are more satisfying than working with a team of top notch engineers to creatively deliver a product or service that absolutely delights a client. Creating concrete solutions from sometimes ambiguous requirements, overcoming technical obstacles, all within the constraints of appropriate costs and schedules are all the things Bernd enjoys about technology development.
When not at work, Bernd spends time with his family, walking his dog, enjoying music, and playing basketball.
