Vitaliy Epshteyn

Vitaliy Epshteyn

Medical CTO and Senior Director

TE is unique in that most of our medical products are custom. This requires considerable collaboration throughout the design and development process to achieve an optimal solution to our customers’ needs. Our customers begin the conversation early in the process with a design or engineering goal in mind. Our engineers are then able to collaborate with our customers and involve them in the process every step of the way. Our sales team also works with our customers to integrate ideas and innovations with their engineers. With more than 18 years of experience, Vitaliy has seen the impact engineering has made in improving the medical device industry. “A nice benefit medical engineers have is that their work helps people and can even save lives.”

Monika Kuklok

Monika Kuklok

Senior Manager, Innovation Platforms & Ventures

Automation is evolving – rapidly.  As Monika sees it, today’s industrial devices – factories, buildings, transport systems – are quickly becoming digital gadgets that in the future will seamlessly communicate. Envisioning a strategy for achieving big-picture interoperability is this MBA’s area of specialty. Since joining TE in 2010, Monika has worked across the organization to establish and mature new approaches to enabling and managing innovation, a need she identified and anticipated while leading strategy and product management for TE’s solar solutions. Today, she leads a diverse team of experts in engineering, product management, and business development. Under her guidance, her team – based in Europe and the US – is responsible for all areas of innovation in automation, from idea generation to market launch. Of particular interest to Monika is identifying how customer needs are expanding and how trends in technology and industry are opening new opportunities for industrial innovation, business partnerships, and research collaborations. Currently, she is closely monitoring the Internet of Things (IoT), which Monika sees as having tremendous potential for helping customers in industrial markets automate factory systems, in ways that enable factories to increase productivity with expected outcomes. Given her success in identifying the key enablers shaping new ideas, it is worth following Monika’s ideas about IoT and its potential impact on the future of automation.
