Luke Oltmans, Senior Quality Engineer and Team Lead, joined the Kymanox team in August 2018 with ten years of experience in manufacturing engineering and project management.
Luke finds inspiration at Kymanox when he is required to “think outside the box” of quality and regulatory guidelines. He welcomes this challenge of finding solutions to difficult problems. The feeling of satisfaction when his work directly leads to more medicines and devices making it to the market is the best part of his job.
The one thing Luke has learned at Kymanox is to “define, define, define!” He believes defining the problem, scope, and objectives of the project or problem upfront is the best pathway to success. Luke channels Albert Einstein’s quote, “If I had an hour to solve a problem, I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and five minutes thinking about solutions.”
One piece of advice that Luke believes helps him to “Get More Done” is to trust the people on his team!
“The more you empower and support your team, the more effective you and your partners, including Kymanox, will be to Get More Done!”
Luke and his wife, Marty, have three children: Alora (4), Eliza (3), and Lexi (1). Originally from Cary and now living in Durham, Luke loves getting outdoors with his kids and serving others through his local church. When Luke is not at Kymanox solving problems and working with clients, you can find him vacationing in the North Carolina mountains or eating his favorite food, Eastern North Carolina BBQ.
“I personally experienced how much Kymanox cares about our clients’ success when one of my clients had additional project outcome requirements. Kymanox mobilized to re-evaluate the customer needs, add another experienced team member, and provide overtime effort to deliver on the project goal.”
