Mike Hagen Joins ControlTek as New Principal Engineer


Welcome, Mike!

As new Principal Engineer, Mike Hagen will largely be responsible for hardware design including integration and verification for new electronic products.

Mike brings decades of experience to his new role, with expertise that spans the product development process; he has expanded his responsibilities throughout his career to include positions as Manufacturing and Electronics Engineer, Evaluation Engineer, Engineering Manager and even Director of Advanced Development. In addition, he has chaired five different technical standards committees working to develop the new XVI test and measurement standard.

A Passion for Start-Ups

After several years working within larger organizations such as Tektronix, Hagen has spent the last decade in the startup world bringing exciting new products to the public, including the E-Park personal parking meter, a handheld device that allows users to pay for parking without an outside meter. Currently, he holds ten unique patents.

“Start-ups are a lot of fun, and a lot of work. Helping them find success is definitely a passion of mine.” --Mike Hagen

That is a passion that is shared by the entire ControlTek organization. Over the past 45 years, ControlTek has worked tirelessly to support new product development and to provide all of the resources needed by both small and large companies to prepare products for successful production, from feasibility and planning to design, prototyping, and testing.

“Mike’s breadth of experience will be invaluable to our customers. He understands the technical challenges involved in getting products ready for production and his intimate knowledge of the startup world has given him a tremendous ability to retain focus on the big picture throughout a project.” --ControlTek President Andy LaFrazia

Hagan joined ControlTek on April 4, 2016.
