Daryl Gerke, PE, has been a successful consulting engineer for over 30 years. In 1978, Daryl and his business partner (the late Bill Kimmel) co-founded Kimmel Gerke Associates as a part time electrical engineering consulting firm.
In 1987, they went full time — the day the stock market crashed — and have now survived for over 28 years!
Prior to consulting, Daryl held engineering positions with industry leaders like Intel, Tektronix, Sperry Univac, and Collins Radio. He kept gravitating to startup situations, and was involved with several new product launches, along with a brand new company.
He spent ten years in technical sales/marketing, which allowed him to hone his business skills along with his technical skills — both necessary for consulting.
Getting started (and building the business) was often scary and filled with mysteries, but several people graciously helped along the way. Now it is time to share some of those secrets and hard earned knowledge, to help others make the JumpToConsulting.
