Ron Taylor joined the PEI-Genesis team last summer. Since then, he has been enjoying exposure to the numerous markets we serve and learning our suite of connector, cable assembly, and sensor offerings. Ron’s background is with original equipment manufacturers, so the distribution business is relatively new territory for him.
Last year, we wrote about the rise of body sensors for military use. As we noted at the time, wearable technology for soldiers was poised to become a half-billion-dollar market. However, the growth in military technology isn’t limited to body sensors.

Lew Peck joined the PEI team one year ago as a Sales Engineer for the Central region of the United States. He’s appreciated the opportunity to grow professionally and find the best solutions for his customers’ needs. Lew knows solution selling is not a one-time thing; it requires constant follow-up. He believes that’s something that sets PEI apart – the fact that we search for the best possible solution and are willing to push the limits of what’s already been done. Lew feels that customers continue to return to us because we relentlessly solve their interconnect problems. He’s enjoyed helping the sales team understand the difference and importance of selling value versus just selling components. Lew takes pleasure in pushing others to realize their full potential.
