Mike Wasson in his own words:
I guess the
peg for being on the Legends site, would be my 20 years in the publishing
field helping readers understand the various flow products. As
Publisher Iíve visited hundreds of companies and dozens of plants in the
process industries. Itís been my dedication to help buyers connect
with equipment manufacturers. My background is a unique blend of
equipment, process plants, and communicating information about these
subjects. Iíll be 62 next month and I have over 40 years
experience with equipment. So here are the details.
graduated from Bradley
joined the Marine
Corp Reserves and trained as a combat engineer, mostly learned how to
build and blow up bridges and sweep for mines.
Caterpillar starting in 1970 as an Advertising Copy Writer in Parts and
Service Sales. Moved to
In 1978, I
moved to Caterpillar fork lift product lines and worked in various roles
(parts marketing, dealer development, sales and field warranty
responsibility) until 1985, when I joined the Caterpillar dealer in Philadelphia
. I was responsible for forklift product support. We had 5
branches, 5 sales reps, over 20 parts employees and over 100 repair
servicemen. I learned lots about equipment in my 20 years
association with Caterpillar -- engines, hydraulics, pumps, and wear
characteristics of equipment placed in many different applications.
I went back to my
first love, publishing, in 1990, starting as an advertising sales rep for
Processing and taking on the Publisherís role in 1993. I have had
the Publisherís job ever since, except for a 3 year sabbatical from 2000
to 2003 when I did some market consulting work for DuPont, started a
webinar company with two other partners, and then returned to the
publishing world with a magazine called GPS World.
I grew up on
the farm, always working around equipment. So I know and love
machinery. For fun, I love the outdoors. I ski, golf, hike,
shoot photography, and enjoy sharing it all with my family.
