Employee Spotlight: Gene Arbogast Enjoys Solving Testing Challenges

Even with his extensive industry and product knowledge, HVT’s EMC division manager, Gene Arbogast, says he learns new things every day. While his undergrad is in meteorology, Gene has always been interested in electromagnetics. Before coming to HVT in 2015, he worked as an electronic engineer for the U.S. Navy. Now, as HVT’s EMC division manager, he contacts prospective customers, generates sales quotes, and works with sales representatives in the U.S. and Canada. 

The job allows Gene to apply his technical knowledge and sociable nature. He said that he enjoys getting to know clients and prospective customers, discovering their EMC testing challenges and finding solutions to their test requirements.

He also likes learning about the impact HVT has on the wide variety of clients it serves, which includes military agencies, test labs, companies like Google and Tesla, and product developers in industries such as aviation, household appliances, and automobiles. 

Given the nature of the procurement process, it can take more than a year for larger orders to close. So for Gene, it is a great day when the sales process comes to fruition, as orders go through and customers receive the solutions they need.
