Global Digital Enterprise Consultant
Round Rock, Texas

Zach has been engaged in the larger industry — serving the local chemical engineering community as a part of the St. Louis chapter of AIChE, holding positions as Secretary, Treasurer and YP Chair. He is a frequent presenter at conferences around the world, talking about the value of a well-thought-through enterprisewide software deployment and use plan. Zach has been a lead engineer, managed projects, lead sales teams and consulted with customers on enterprisewide digitalization solutions and yet continues to be humble and seeks to understand everything he can to ensure customers and team members are successful.

Fun fact: Zach helped deploy the Emerson-donated simulation system at Missouri University of Science & Technology, helping to enhance the unit operation and controls lab for the chemical engineering department.
