Building a Stronger Team at Stat-Ease

I would like to introduce our newest Stat-Ease team member: Greg Campbell.

Greg is tackling his role as Marketing Manager with energy and a determination to make Stat-Ease® shine! I wanted to learn more about Greg and his thoughts for our company’s future, so I asked him a few questions. Here’s what he had to say:

Tell us a little about your background:
It’s varied. I started with a BA in Biology and worked in a biochemistry lab. I then got my MBA in Marketing and Computer Information Systems and have worked in sales and marketing at different companies over the years (mostly in publishing and manufacturing). Most recently, I founded a company with a partner that sold parts for industrial machinery. All of these items pushed me down the path towards Stat-Ease.

What attracted you to joining the Stat-Ease team?
First, I liked the people I met here; friendly and smart. Next, this company sells a robust piece of software that has been around for years. It’s a great combination that allowed me to get back to concentrating on sales and marketing, it’s what I do best!

You’ve attended a Stat-Ease DOE class – what did you learn about our clients?
That sample size is small and insignificant (see what I did there?), but interesting. Most of the clients I met were engineers and cringed at the mere mention of the word ‘statistics’. But they picked up the concepts quickly and started to run with them! They began planning and using what they had just learned to think about how to run some experiments.

What strikes you as something that people should know about DOE?
You don’t have to like, or completely understand, the statistical theories that form the foundation of DOE (look at my example above). We’ve done all the heavy lifting and programming, now they just need to use the software to get their answers and move on to the next step in their job.

Tell us something about your personal story.
Well in my spare time I like to coach “diamond sports”, baseball and softball. I spent several years coaching baseball for my oldest son. He’s now aged out of those community programs. Now, it’s all about softball with my youngest daughter. Many of the basics of the two sports are the same, but there are lots of differences as well.

Music is also a big part of who I am, both listening to it and playing it. I’m a guitarist and listen to all types of music.

On behalf of the Stat-Ease team, I welcome Greg to Stat-Ease and look forward to working with him!
