Sessions

Manitoba raised and educated, and now living in Winnipeg with my teenage son. I graduated from Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manitoba in the early '90s, and focused the early part of my career designing and manufacturing Agricultural Equipment. After getting an MBA I started leading departments and companies in a variety of manufacturing industries to determine the need and opportunity that existed in electronics. I then started JCA Electronics out of my parents garage, building wire harnesses for OEMs, and growing the company profitably at close to 100% per year over the next 10 years. At that point, the relationships we had established with our Ag OEM customers allowed us to develop our own line of electronic controllers and software to meet the demands of advancing automation in farming. We were looking to the future, and incorporated prevalent technologies into our products such as connectivity with smart devices. And over the next 10 years our evolution continued, with the hiring of over 100 employees, establishing a US Engineering office, and developing more products such as advanced sensors, software libraries and an autonomous hardware platform. We were focused on establishing powerful technologies in a standardized and practical manner in Agriculture. We now serve the needs of some of the largest and most innovative Ag Equipment manufacturers in the world. Utilizing a model of innovation and business we refer to as the JCA Way.
