2 people have recommended Efren
“I have known and worked with Efren for quite a few years, and he has always done a superb
job designing printed circuit boards and test fixtures for new and existing imaging systems at GE
Healthcare Surgery. His leadership and vision also led to the standardization and efficient testing
of printed circuit boards throughout all of GE Healthcare and its suppliers throughout the world. I
highly recommend Efren to any company that needs his expertise and skills.”

—Ric Cleveland, Staff Engineer, Supplier Quality Compliance, Stryker, worked with Efren at GE

“I have known Efren since 2010 and he has been a great support to me while I was driving the
DFT initiative in different GE Healthcare modalities and businesses. Efren is always eager to help
others. I have invited Efren to several board level and High Level Assembly (HLA) test strategy
discussions to help out other GE Healthcare teams (Life Science, CT, MR, Sourcing, etc), which
are not a part of the Surgery business (which he is a part of), but Efren never refused my request to
help. His application knowledge of PWA test strategy is greatly admired and respected by anyone I
have brought him in contact with through DFT initiative.”

—Mathios Dejene, Program Manager/Associate Director, Evolent Health, worked with Efren at GE
