Susan earned her doctorate in Physical Chemistry from the University of Southern
California in Los Angeles. Her graduate school research involved visible and UV
luminescence and developed her skills in instrumentation and signal processing.
Following graduation, Susan went to work for Nobel Laureate Richard Smalley at Rice University in Houston. It was from Professor Smalley's lab that Susan was recruited by Tektronix.
She has more than 20 years of experience both working in new product development and working with clients to achieve their business growth goals, 16 of these for Tektronix. Susan was a very productive member of the tiger team that developed the hot wax ink jet color printing technology. That technology now figures prominently in Xerox's computer printer product lineup. While at Tektronix, Susan was involved first hand with
the entire new product development enterprise, from the first provocative idea through successful product launch. Susan had four patents allowed while at Tektronix.
It was during her involvement with the development of Tek's hot wax ink jet printing technology (now owned by Xerox) that Susan's interests in the business side of high technology began. Susan left Tektronix to develop her own expertise in business by enrolling in Portland State University's MBA program in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from that program in 2001.
Federici Business Group was founded in 1999. Since then many client companies strengthened their growth prospects as a result of Susan's consultation. Diverse clients have benefited from Susan's talent to very rapidly acquire expertise in new technical fields, particularly those involving the integration of multiple scientific and engineering disciplines.
Susan is also active in the local professional community, where she is an officer of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Oregon Section. Susan holds Senior Membership in the IEEE.
Today, Susan and her Federici Business Group collaborators work with technology companies to help them create competitive advantages for themselves through a combination of business and competitive environment research, analysis and synthesis.
