I clamoured for a promotion, and finally got it!
James White and I were named Engineering Managers. James was given half the team for Embedded Systems Engineering, and I was given the other half for Industrial Systems Engineering. Our offices were side-by-side in the building at 1305 Clarence. We worked very closely together, often reviewing each others’ work, and seconding our team members back and forth. We both always interviewed any candidate for either group. And, for existing historical projects, James and I sometimes would cross over as well.
