CTI Management Biographies


After graduating from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Mr. Symens was recruited into the prestigious Firestone College Class Management Group. He held various corporate and plant engineering positions with increasing levels of responsibility. After leaving Firestone, Mr. Symens worked for Hewlett Packard in Cleveland, Ohio and was instrumental in establishing the first technical consulting engagements for the company.

In 1978 Mr. Symens and Curtis Lamb established Commercial Timesharing, Inc. (CTI) to create a time-shared record keeping and billing system for medical clinics on a multi-user minicomputer. In 1980 CTI began to seek engineering engagements in the manufacturing industries of northeast Ohio. Under Mr. Symens leadership, CTI has become internationally recognized for designing tire uniformity controls and process data collection systems. Mr. Symens sold CTI to the Poling Group in 2002 and continued to provide leadership and technical design as the President of CTI, until his retirement in the fourth quarter of 2018.
