CAMERON SMITH Employee Spotlight: NOVEMBER 2019
Kramer Engineers expanded the team this week, so we’d like to introduce our November Employee Spotlight, Cameron Smith. He is the newest member of the firm’s mechanical engineering department. Cam come to us from Imasen Bucyrus Technology (IB Tech) where he innovated automotive technologies for the past 7 years.
Background and Early Career
Cameron earned a degree in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University in 2012 and immediately jumped into the automotive design sector. After graduation he launched his professional career with IB Tech, engineering seat mechanisms for Honda and Acura vehicles.
Cameron quickly climbed the company ranks to area manager, where he led an interdepartmental team. Cam oversaw new model development and evaluated product readiness. His projects spanned the globe from Bucyrus, Ohio to the Philippines and Japan; the company’s home base. When asked if he spoke Japanese, Cam modestly replied “I’m not fluent. I can put enough words together to order coffee”
It Was Time For a Change | Shifted Gears
Today, Cameron Smith has shifted gears and is retooling his engineering skill set and expanding into commercial mechanicals with Kramer Engineers. So, he made the leap from designing the technologies that power components in an 18 square foot car to engineering systems that span a 180,000 square foot building.
When Cameron Smith is not Burning the Midnight Oil
In his free time, Cam loves both playing and watching soccer. And like all red-blooded Ohio State University alums, he also loves his football. Go Bucks! But when he’s not tailgating , Cameron Smith is a die-hard board game junkie. One of his current favorites is Carcassonne, which is a medieval themed game where strategy battles the luck of the draw.
