Megan also serves in various capacities at the University of Buffalo, and remains committed to honoring these obligations alongside his role at AMI. 

“Adopting and implementing digitally transformative technologies can be a challenging endeavor for any manufacturer,” said Megan. “However, with an experienced team and the right partners, the gains a manufacturer can expect are substantial. I look forward to helping AMI’s customers achieve their digital manufacturing goals.”

Having initially joined the company with a master’s degree in business administration in 2008, Schneider has worked his way up through roles of increasing responsibility. Before being named Head of Sales, Schneider was EMEA Sales Territory Manager, where he expanded the company’s network of distributors, opening new offices in Italy and Spain.
