After graduating from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering, Jerry Tyson was selected for the elite “cATCh” program from Parker/Compumotor and started his career as an application engineer at their headquarters in Rohnert Park, California. After gaining extensive knowledge within the field of motion control, Jerry was placed with Regan Controls, a Parker distributor located in Charlotte, North Carolina. While at Regan he fulfilled several roles over a ten-year period, including outside sales for South Carolina, and later as application engineering manager, where his group provided technical support for the Carolinas, Tennessee, and Alabama. During this period Jerry broadened his automation expertise to include PLCs, HMIs, SCADA software, and machine vision, in addition to his motion control background. After Regan Controls was purchased by Cross Automation Jerry moved into his new role of senior application engineer, providing such services as project management, motion controller and PLC programming, machine commissioning and general technical support. This experience was a perfect fit for R. L. Matus & Associates and after spending 7 years as our Florida Sales Engineer he now serves as Regional Motion Engineer supporting all of the R. L. Matus manufacturer’s representatives across the southeast.
