Jeff Sickmeier, senior materials information consultant, is a recent addition to MDMi. He brings to the team decades of experience in materials testing and analysis, information management, and program management of large-scale technology development programs. At MDMi, Jeff uses his depth and breadth of experience to understand customer needs and help identify solutions that provide users what they need, when they need it, and in the form they need it to be.
Prior to joining the team at MDMi, Jeff worked with Rolls-Royce Corporation in Indianapolis. From his beginnings in analysis of metals, Jeff grew his interest in all things computer related into a decades long run developing and implementing enterprise-wide materials information management systems, culminating in the successful implementation of Granta MI at Rolls-Royce. Along the way, he managed a group responsible for metals testing, analysis and provision of design data to the engineering community. For the last decade he was a Sr. Program Manager, facilitating the development of advanced CMCs for aerospace applications.
Jeff is a lifelong resident of Greenwood, Indiana, just south of Indianapolis. He graduated from Purdue University School of Science in 1980 with a B.S. in Chemistry and is a passionate believer in lifelong learning, having studied everything from database design to ancient cultures and languages. His mantra: any day you learn something is a good day.
Jeff has many passions outside of the office. First and foremost is raising two boys with his wife, experiencing adventure while trekking along the many trails on the home property, getting the boys to soccer and swimming lessons, and just living the joys of being a dad again. When time allows, Jeff loves to be outdoors tending to grape vines, fruit trees and a small vegetable garden. Indoors you will find him in his workshop one day, then his library the next, researching his family’s roots back through the generations. Because, well, any day you learn something is a good day.
