80 The PCB Magazine • September 2016 1 Shane Whiteside and Summit Interconnect: Aspiring to New Heights A few weeks ago I was privileged to meet with Shane Whiteside in Ana- heim, California, at KCA Electronics. Whiteside, former COO of TTM, has helped launch a new company—Summit Inter- connect— which encom- passes the recent acquisition of KCA Electronics and Marcel Electronics International. Once again assuming an executive role, this time as CEO and president, Whiteside shared his story, strategy and vision for this new chapter. 2 Karl's Tech Talk: Digital Imaging Update Through the years, I have repeatedly covered and updated digital imaging in this column, from as far back as 1997 in CircuiT- ree, through a column in this magazine in Novem- ber 2015. Several reasons for this extended coverage include the fact that technology had a slow, long incubation time that eventually led to accelerated improvements and acceptance for mass production. 3 Happy's Essential Skills: Project/Program Management No matter what your job, you may have to manage, or play an active role in, a project at some point during your career. It takes a great deal of skill to do this well, but the time you invest in building good project management skills can pay off enormously. 4 A Day with Pete (Starkey) Usually the one conducting the interviews, I-Connect007's own Pete Starkey recently found himself on the other side of the microphone when I spent time with him in his hometown of Market Bosworth, England. There, between hiking and gardening, we found time to discuss Pete's rich history in the PCB indus- try and the many changes and surprises he's seen in the manufacturing process over the years.
