Process and Data Automation Announce a New Vice President of Operations

June 22, 2020 – Process and Data Automation (PDA) is proud to announce that Jeremy Anderson has been promoted to Vice President of Operations. This is a newly created position in the company and Jeremy will be the perfect inaugural leader to help blaze this new trail.

When asked why Jeremy was the right fit for this new role, Process and Data President, Joe Snyder shared this, “Jeremy has been a pivotal figure for most Process and Data Automation clients as established in his prior roles as Outside Sales and later as Service Manager. The ability to make and maintain relationships while driving positive change inside of Process and Data Automation are characteristics that we felt were keys to success as we expanded to this role. These traits, along with Jeremy’s general business acumen and desire to deliver successful results for clients, made the decision obvious that he was the correct person for this position.”

Jeremy has been a member of the PDA team for 10+ years. In that time, he has worked as a Sales Engineer, Project Manager, and most recently, the Service Manager. He has excelled in all these positions and they have given him a deep understanding of how the operation works best at PDA. Prior to joining the team at PDA, he was an Industrial Control Specialist at Erie Bearings Co.

Excited about his new role, Jeremy confided, “Having been fortunate enough to work closely with everyone here at PDA has been one of the best experiences of my career. It has helped me develop a deep appreciation for the entire PDA team, our staff, our clients, and all of the other external partners. My goal in this new position is to strengthen those bonds and continue to assist in the growth of this company and our people.”

We’re Not Your Average DSG Team!

Process and Data Automation’s (PDA) Digitalization Group (DSG) is not your average software integration group. PDA places a lot of emphasis on training for the benefit of our customers and as such, makes sure that members of the DSG group are certified as ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialists and have obtained Cisco Routing and Switching Certification among other industry certifications.

ISA has developed the ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Certificate program to increase knowledge and awareness of the ISA/IEC 62442 standards. The first certificate in the program is the ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist.  The specialist certificate program is designed for professionals involved in IT and control system security roles that need to develop a command of industrial cybersecurity terminology and understanding of the material embedded in the ISA/IEC 62443 standards. The ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity certificates are awarded to those who successfully complete a designated training course and pass the exam.

“As Cybersecurity becomes a focus in the industry, we wanted to add more credibility to our networking team. Having the ISA perspective allows our customers to see that we have dedicated and direct experience with industrial networking and industrial cybersecurity”, PDA Data Services Manager, Scott McCausland shared.

Earning a Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification is one of the best ways for PDA employees to provide our clients with expert networking. Cisco pioneered routing and switching technologies—and continues to lead the way, with the greatest market share and largest installed base across many industries. The overwhelming majority of today’s Internet traffic travels over network pathways built with Cisco infrastructure products. Equally important is the fact that certification keeps our DSG group current with all of today’s technology.

PDA is proud to have a world-class DSG group that is always on the forefront of the latest technologies. Our customers can be assured that our team is one of the most skilled and knowledgeable in the field.
