Curiculum Vitae - Geoffrey Stenzel
The training as a graduate engineer took place at the University of Applied Sciences Bochum in the field of electrical engineering with a specialization in automation technology. Parallel to my studies in Bochum, I successfully completed the Bachelor of Science degree in European Engineering Studies at Coventry University in England.
After my first professional experience in consulting with customer assignments nationally and internationally, I began to build up my expertise as an expert in the field of explosion protection at various testing and certification service providers in 2009. In the beginning, the focus was on electrical explosion protection type of protection Intrinsic Safety, later I was authorized as an expert in the field of explosion protection for testing and certification of electrical and mechanical equipment according to their common types of protection and for testing of installations requiring monitoring according to Directive 1999/92/EC. During this time, I was mainly focused on established mining suppliers as well as other well-known manufacturers of explosion-protected products and operators of explosion-proof systems.
Until recently, I was responsible for all ex-issues along the entire product life cycle (specification, development and documentation, external certification, conformity assessment, etc.) for a manufacturer of industrial automation products as a certification representive.
Thanks to my expertise and my consistently well-maintained contacts, I have a broad network of testing and certification service providers, manufacturers and colleagues of the same field. Among the latter is the long-standing contact with my colleague Günter Kämper, which resulted in the succession of ExGuide Technology on 01.01.2020.
