Leadership at Ciholas

Chris Gander

Director of Prototyping

Chris Gander is a 2002 alumnus of Purdue University where he received his BS in Electrical Engineering Technology.

Chris has been with Ciholas since 2003 and has served in a variety of roles before becoming Director of the prototyping division.  Chris has built and repaired electronics, conducted root cause failure analysis of systems, tested and deployed test suites and fixtures,  sourced materials, and contracted suppliers. Chris ultimately provides a bridge between design and real viable product. He works hand-in-hand with Ciholas designers to make products that both meet clients expectations and that meet today’s design for manufacturability standards.  He and the prototyping division serve as an invaluable counterpart to CIholas’ engineering side of the company by performing difficult assembly, testing, and repair tasks.

Chris is the proud father of three sons and is frequently active in their sports as a coach or team manager.
