      • I think this part of Job requirement may be a hint :
        - experience with management of different skill levels (engineers, technicians and operations)
        - Ability to think structurally
        - Good organizational sense

        If you add to the picture the emotions that were spilled here by some emagineers a few months back then it sounds like John Coleman had some conflicts with locals.
        If so then it's all for good.
        Acy mentioned John Trumpetto - he is currently Manufacturing Manager .
        Looking through his profile on LinkedIn I think that he is more a technical guy. He used to be a Senior Engineer Manager and then Senior Engineer at IBM for 22 years. Garce, or anyone else who knows insides of corporate ladder at IBM, is it a step down (from Sr. Engineer Manager to Sr. Engineer) or it's a sideway move ?

      • sounds like a maturing process ... at some point every man must cleave from his mother ...
