Hello, I'm Chad Anderson, and I've had a diverse and rewarding journey in the field of engineering. My professional background reflects a deep commitment to innovation, leadership, and a passion for solving complex problems.
I'm currently the Owner, Designer, and Engineer at Anderson Design Works, a venture I embarked on in May 2022. In this role, I've been instrumental in developing a launch vehicle pressurization system, and I've had the privilege of designing and developing Ground Support Equipment to support space exploration and research.
Before founding Anderson Design Works, I served as the Manager of Advanced Manufacturing Engineering at SONENDO from February 2019 to April 2022. During my time there, I managed Manufacturing Engineering activities and played a crucial role in mentoring and developing a team of four engineers, fostering growth and excellence in the organization.
My journey began as a Test Engineer at Parker Hannifin Aerospace in May 2001, and over the years, I've accumulated invaluable experience and expertise through various roles in companies such as Vector Launch, Toyota Racing Development, and CIRCOR Aerospace. I've managed propulsion engineering test activities, developed track simulation software, and led test engineering activities. These experiences have culminated in my current role at Anderson Design Works, where I continue to make significant contributions to the engineering field.
Beyond my professional achievements, I'm an Oklahoma native and a proud Army veteran. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona, graduating in 2001. When I'm not immersed in the world of engineering, I enjoy cheering for Oklahoma University Football, staying active through running, and most importantly, relishing the moments spent with my two wonderful daughters, Kylie and Sienna. My life is enriched by my marriage to Carol Anderson, also an Army veteran and the owner of South County Fitness. Together, we're a team dedicated to both our family and the betterment of our community.
