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.
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 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
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
