After enlisting in the United States Air Force, Greg Tischner completed training to become an F-4 fighter aircraft Crew Chief. He attended the College of the Air Force while stationed in Goldsboro, North Carolina and concentrated his studies in the field of Aircraft Avionics and Flight Instrumentation. Upon his completion of service, he shifted his focus to a new-found interest in the industrial automation industry by becoming an Outside Sales Engineer at Lakeland Engineering, an electrical controls distributor in St. Louis, MO. During his time with the company he obtained a wealth of experience in the areas of PLCs, ladder logic programming, VFDs, sensors and operator interfaces, and in conjunction with membership in the local IEC chapter, he further enhanced his controls knowledge. From the distribution world, Greg moved into corporate life holding a variety of sales, business development and management positions (over a 10-year span) with Xycom, Siemens and Mitsubishi working with manufacturer’s representatives, direct OEMs and end users. His desire to leave the Midwest and relocate to Florida led him back to the distribution world as he accepted a Sales Engineering position with Florida Motion and Control. After gaining extensive experience calling on OEMs across the state, Greg joined R. L. Matus & Associates as our Sales Engineer in Florida.
