Additional Information

Over 20 years in the fitness equipment and bicycle industries bringing to the table a well-rounded professional perspective. From Mechanical Engineer designing products to head of Product Development & Quality ensuring manufacturing process and sourcing excellence, my expertise covers a wide spectrum of technical disciplines. With experience in technical field service training and being an avid user of fitness and bicycle equipment, I can also relate well with the plaintiff’s side of a product liabilities claim. I have provided testimony and sat as the most knowledgeable defense party on over 45 depositions and mediations in 6 litigations in the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, and New York, as well as well as internationally in Canada and Hong Kong. During college and after graduation, I was employed as a Mechanical Designer then Mechanical Engineer in the bike industry for Profile Design & Primo Products. I later transitioned into the fitness industry in 2005 as a Senior Mechanical Engineer for Unisen, Inc DBA Star Trac. Joe currently serves as the Vice President of Global Product Development & Quality for Core Health & Fitness, LLC which is headquartered in Vancouver, WA.
