About J. H. Welsch
A summa cum laude graduate of Lehigh University, Jack Welsch (legally “John” and not to be confused with former GE president, Jack Welch) has had over 4 decades of experience in engineering and new product development at all levels and has been awarded 38 U.S. and numerous foreign patents. He has been directly involved with the phased and gated process for new product development since 1979 and has spent much of his time and energy in the implementation and refinement of the process.
While most of his career has been spent in management and executive positions in manufacturing companies, he has taught the business aspects of product development as an adjunct instructor at both Lehigh and Wilkes Universities.
He has been a speaker on the subject at conferences at Cornell, Lehigh and Wilkes Universities and was honored to be a featured speaker at the prestigious Stage-Gate® Innovation Summit hosted by noted Stage-Gate® guru, Dr. Robert Cooper.
He is currently Principal of J. H. Welsch Consulting, L.L.C., which is dedicated to helping organizations to improve their new product development process.
Having grown up in northeastern Pennsylvania, he and his wife, Linda, now enjoy life in Arizona.
