Meet the new members of the Synergis EDS Family!

We’re excited to share that our Synergis EDS team is growing! We’ve brought on board some awesome new people whose experience and passion for helping others is second to none. Get to know the new faces that will be supporting you along the way, from getting your new software to technical help, and everything in between!

Scott Smith

Our newest Mechanical Application Consultant, Scott, comes to us with years of experience and quite an impressive and varied background, including hobbies like Natural Philosophy and Culinary Arts, just to name a few!

Professionally, Scott grew up in the oil and gas business doing pipe drafting for refineries, but very quickly moved into mechanical design. From there, he went into 3D sheet metal enclosures for electronics using AutoCAD, and after working as a contract Draftsman for a while he wound up in Austin, TX working for a defense contractor designing a minefield breaching system. The list does go on, but it’s safe to say that his career in 3D CAD and manufacturing has been deep and wide! Eventually, he found his way back to Oil and Gas Manufacturing using Inventor and Vault, and has been managing it, people, and production ever since.

You’ll find Scott working with our customers doing a lot of Vault implementations and training, and just generally sharing his wealth of knowledge!

John Aulenbach

Need help with your products? Call the helpdesk and talk to our newest Helpldesk Technician, John! We welcomed John to the Synergis Family with over 25 years of Manufacturing design experience, designing machinery for the cement and mining industries. John is experienced in AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, AutoCAD Mechanical, Inventor, and Vault, so if you have questions, trust that he can get you answers!

John isn’t just an expert in software – outside of Synergis he’s interested in Antique Motorcycles (he own’s a 1942 Indian) and is an assistant den leader for his son’s Cub Scouts. We’re excited to have him on board!

Tina Plitsas

Tina joins us as an Account Manager for the Manufacturing team! She has over 10 years of experience as an Operations Coordinator and Customer Success Manager, so with her as your account manager, you’ll be in good hands! We’re confident that she’ll deliver a uniquely positive customer experience with her dedication and focus on customer Advocacy.

Tina says, “I knew my customer’s needs before they did, which made me realize that I should be doing something more, which led me to Synergis. I am super excited that my new role at Synergis is going to allow me to grow my skills with the company, and after the interview process I was even more excited because I knew I was joining an awesome team!” We’re equally as excited to have her here!

Liz Harrison

Liz will be working closely with our sales, finance, and operations teams as our new Sales & Operations Specialist! Liz comes to us with an accounting background with ranging experiences at large corporate to small AEC businesses. She is quite accustomed to ‘wearing many hats’ and has a reputation of being fun to work with!

As our Sales & Operations Specialist, Liz will be working with many of our customers, assisting them in processing orders and helping with any questions they might have in the order process – if you call the office, you’ll most likely hear Liz’s friendly voice on the phone! Not only is she great with customers and savvy in all our operations processes, but she’s pretty cool outside the office, playing bass in a cover band!

Be sure to stay tuned as we highlight each of our valued team members with our #SynergisCADSpotlight profiles that we put out monthly.
