Meet Our Newest Engineer, Mr. Geoffrey Sanko

Process and Data Automation (PDA) is proud to introduce you to our newest Engineer, Geoffrey Sanko. Geoff brings nearly 10 years of skill and experience with him making him a great addition to the PDA team.

PDA’s Vice President, Tim Andrews, shared his enthusiasm by saying, “I am very excited to have a person of Geoff’s attitude and talents join our PDA family. Along with his positive attitude and great personality, Geoff has nearly 10 years of experience in engineering, design, and project management. With his experience and skillset, Geoff will make an immediate impact at PDA and in servicing our clients.”

Geoff has both a BA in Economics and a BS in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from Penn State Behrend. His previous employment has included working for RoviSys as a System Integrator and for Great Lakes Automation Services as an Assembly and Inspection Machine Builder.

Geoff is excited to be back in the Erie area as both and his wife are from the area and knew that this was where they wanted to raise a family. He shared, “My wife and I both grew up in Erie. After moving away, we came to miss everything you take for granted while living here. We really wanted to start our family here in Erie, and the opportunity from PDA came at the perfect time. PDA offered a stimulating work environment as well as allowing for the work-life balance, which allows us to enjoy coming back to this area.”

When asked about why he is excited to work at PDA he said, “I am excited to continue growing as a project manager and as an engineer. In today’s technology-driven society, if you are not always pushing yourself to learn and do more, then you are falling behind. PDA also services a wide breadth of customers, and each customer has unique products and systems. Each new site is like experiencing a new episode of How It’s Made.”
