Scott has been fascinated with hardware since he was old enough to hold a screwdriver. He worked on a robotic tuna fish, life size robotic dinosaurs for Disney Imagineering, and robotic baby dolls with Hasbro before joining iRobot where he was responsible for leading the Roomba team to scale the functional prototype to high volume production of the first 3 million units.
Since founding Dragon Innovation, Scott has enjoyed working with hundreds of companies to provide expertise from DFM to factory selection, through project management and sustaining engineering.
Scott received his Bachelors from Dartmouth and Masters from MIT.
Herman earned his insight into factory operations and high volume manufacturing as an operator. Leading an automobile supply factory, Herman worked to obtain the first QS 9000 verification in China and Hong Kong.
After serving as the Far East Project Leader for Hasbro’s first generation FurReal Friends, Herman joined iRobot. As Managing Director in the Far East, Herman oversaw Supply Chain, Costing & Sourcing, New Product Introduction, and Quality and was instrumental in the launch of Roomba, Scooba, Looj and ConnectR.
Now Dragon’s Far East leader, Herman leverages his network and experience to lower costs, improve quality, and accelerate time-to-market.
Herman holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the Technical University of Nova Scotia (Daltech, Dalhousie University).
