Paul Schnitzler, Ph.D.

http://imse.eng.usf.edu/images/image015.jpgDr. Paul Schnitzler is a keynote speaker, author, educator and consultant specializing in Successful Change, Motivation, and Creativity which work together for overall business success.

In many situations, Dr. Schnitzler has successfully introduced significant changes defying the usual 70% failure: He defines success as achieving all of the desired goals! One of these achievements led to the ubiquitous use of fiber optics for undersea communications. Another was the creation of the first broadcast-quality CCD video camera which won a television Emmy! Each of these had billion dollar benefits to the industries involved.

 

Dr. Schnitzler has extensive senior level experience in the electronics field including work with both large and small-or-startup companies. He has been particularly effective in getting technology products devel­oped and out the door. His approach helps people enjoy their work and want to be better at it — and so they are.

Dr. Schnitzler has directed the development of products in wire, wireless, and fiber telecommunications; video systems including cameras and plasma display panels; and software in medical, database, and embedded applications. These were accomplished at Bell Laboratories (16,000 bidirectional channels, analog coaxial system; 274 Mb/S undersea fiber system), RCA Corporation (hybrid 500 MHz transmitter; increased satellite phone capacity; Emmy-winning broadcast camera), the Time Inc. Magazine Company (bindery-line video monitor system, enterprise data model), Cadence Design Systems (developed $10,000,000 design sales pipeline, performed market research resulting in $12,000,000 sale), and a variety of smaller companies (prototype for new technology plasma panel, fast cross-tab data analysis application).

Currently, he is on the faculty at the University of South Florida where he teaches engineers to be leaders. Previously he was Senior Director, Systems, for Deep Sea Link, Inc. a special applications telecommunications company. He served as CTO of Mayday, Mayday, Inc. a check fraud prevention startup. As the interim CEO for another pre-launch startup, Paul identified a $3 billion untapped market which urgently needed their new nanoparticle material; and, as VP of Operations at ZMedia, he facilitated the successful acquisition of this profitable dot-com startup company for $15 million. As VP of Engineering for Coastcom, he turned around a new product development program and launched their new line of telecommunications multiplexers while shortening time to market by six months; this was expected to double their revenue to $20 million annually.

Dr. Schnitzler’s consulting activities resulted in a new $2 million per year OEM contract for a computer hardware company, effectively doubling the client’s annual business. He also developed business plans for two companies in the process of seeking funds.

He has taught courses in engineering, management, marketing, and creativity for New York University, Drexel University, Fairleigh Dickenson University, Middlesex County College, RCA, Bell Laboratories, Cadence Design Systems, and the IEEE. He is a P/T Professor on the faculty of the Graduate Management School at Northwestern Polytechnic University. NPU also arranged for his many trips to China to teach seminars for EMBA programs at Fudan University and Fujian Administrative College.

Paul earned his Ph.D. (E.E.) from the Polytechnic University of New York and the B.S. and M.S. in E.E. from New York University. He received the RCA Laboratories’ Doctoral Study award and the Hugo Gernsbach Award, was elected to Sigma Xi, and is listed in Marquis Who’s Who in the World. Paul holds several patents and has published over twenty papers in circuit design, microwaves, television, and telecommunications.
