People call me the engineer that can draw. As a right-brain and left-brain thinker, I have the ability to be creative and analytical. With four degrees in ID, Plastics Engineering, Material Science and MBA, I like to address problems in a holistic approach. Until I started my own consulting firm, Pete Walters Innovation, I've always worked in the corporate world. In my last corporate gig, I worked my way up to a position as a Director of Product Innovation for Aptar, an international packaging company, with global responsibilities. Making a life-changing decision, I left the corporate world to follow my passion of helping people and companies develop innovations. With my education, work history, and experience, I'm able to manage a project from idea to concepts to CAD to prototyping to cost analysis to testing and validation to production and any part in between. With 35 US patents, I'm a creative problem solver that always addresses opportunities with "what-if" rather than "no way".
