SEP’s Chris Shinkle Among TechPoint’s Inaugural Tech 25
Chris Shinkle, Director of Innovation at SEP, has been recognized as an inaugural member of TechPoint’s Tech 25. TechPoint has been a core member of Indiana’s technology foundation since 2006. The Tech 25 recipients will be recognized during the annual Mira Awards Gala, which occurs May 2.
Each year, the Mira awards celebrate the best in tech in Indiana. TechPoint saw a need to identify individuals working behinds the scenes who are critical in building organizations in the community and furthering the impact of Indiana’s technology sector.
“I feel humbled and honored to be included with such a prestigious group of individuals,” said Shinkle. “It’s a great privilege working at SEP and with our clients. I’m part of the inaugural Tech 25 class because of them. We have a great time working together solving new and different problems.”
Shinkle has been a thought leader and initiator of new ideas and continuous improvement since 1997. He introduced and led SEP’s adoption of Agile software development practices in 2004 as well as the adoption of Lean and Kanban in 2007. He has used these methods to lead large, complex projects, including military aircraft engine monitoring and maintenance systems and an FDA-regulated remote patient monitoring system. Shinkle speaks at conferences across the United States promoting Lean and Kanban productivity.
“Chris is instrumental to what we do: helping our clients build great products and improving their own context, said Raman Ohri, President of SEP. “We’re thrilled to have him and that TechPoint is recognizing Chris and other amazing talents in the area. “
