KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—June 14, 2022– RDI Technologies (“RDI” or “the Company”), a provider of vision-based analytical solutions used for predictive maintenance and test & measurement applications across a diverse set of industries, today announced that Erick Jensen has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer and Tim English has joined as Sr. Vice President of Sales. The two executives are the first new hires since RDI received a strategic investment from SFW Capital Partners in February.
“I am very pleased to announce the strengthening of RDI’s senior team with the additions of Erick and Tim,” said Dr. Jeff Hay, Founder and CEO of RDI. “The relevant experience each of them brings to RDI will be hugely additive as we execute our plan to grow and bring our best-in-class solutions to even more customers around the world.”

Previous positions include Senior Manager Finance at General Electric, and Senior Manager of Finance at The Home Depot.
“RDI has an excellent reputation in the industry for both its advanced technology and the high level of service delivered to customers,” Jensen said. “I am excited to be a part of this success and help the company accelerate its already impressive growth.”
Tim English brings years of business development and industry experience to RDI. He comes to RDI from Sauermann Americas, a company that designs and manufactures instrumentation measuring air quality and combustion efficiency, where he was Director of Business Development. Prior to Sauermann, English was Managing Director at Pruftechnik, a global leader in vibration analysis and laser shaft-alignment. He was responsible for the P&L of Pruftechnik in the Americas, which was ultimately acquired by Fluke Corporation. Prior to that, English spent several years at SKF Group following nine years of active duty in the United States Navy.
“I am long-time admirer of RDI and have been a customer and user of RDI technology in my previous businesses,” English said. “I believe there is incredible opportunity for RDI as companies increase their focus on reliability and uptime, and I’m thrilled to join Dr. Hay and the RDI team to help realize this potential.”
