A career of tech trends
To say one zWORKS member stumbled into the world of technology would be inaccurate. It was more of a calculated stumble.
From computer-aided manufacturing to data analytics to low-code technology, this is the story of an engineer-turned-sales-techy who has made a career of anticipating the next tech trend.
He started out as a mechanical engineer in the computer-aided design and manufacturing world. During the five years in that industry, he received one too many offers to convert to the sales world and finally acquiesced.
“Ultimately, I married the engineering background with sales and got into the technical sales arena,” he said.
The year was 2009 and Knecht saw an opportunity.
