54 The PCB Magazine • May 2017 by Patty Goldman I-CONNECT007 I sat down recently with Rebecca Brennan, director of human resources, and Aimee Miller, director of corporate communications for Com- punetics and Compunetix. These sister compa- nies in Monroeville, Pennsylvania are actually three companies: Compunetics is a PCB manu- facturer; Compunetix does assembly; and con- ferencing service provider Chorus Call is con- sidered the parent company. I already knew a little bit about their programs, having spent time at Compunetics in past years. My under- standing was that people really seemed to stick around there, and since this month's issue is fo- cused on digging into ways to attract and retain talent in our industry, I looked forward to learn- ing more about their methods. Patty Goldman: Hi, Becky and Aimee. It is great to meet with you. I really want to learn more about your company's hiring and training practices and the Compunetix philosophy regarding retaining people. Aimee, perhaps you can start and provide a lit- tle background on both Compunetics and Compu- netix and how they fit together with Chorus Call. Please share something with our readers about yourself, and your position. Aimee Miller: I'd be glad to. We are 49+ years old, with our 50th anniversary coming up next February. In the early days of Compunetics, the original parent company, we relied heavily on government contracts including our first for the Navy's Anti-Submarine Warfare program. Years later, in 1990, Compunetix was established and we began to undertake commercial applications within the Communication Systems Division. Within Compunetix we also have a Federal Sys- tems Division, Video Systems Division and, the Instrumentation Systems Division, which works closely with the Printed Circuit Boards Division of Compunetics. We design and manufacture state-of-the-art collaboration applications. Over the years, be- fore we acquired a large percentage of the mar- ket share, Dr. Giorgio Coraluppi, our president and founder, thought it would be a good idea to HOW TO FIND –AND RETAIN– THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR THE RIGHT JOBS FEATURE INTERVIEW
