Meet Brian Reel


Brian Reel, a Project Engineer in our San Luis Obispo, California office since early 2012, also worked with Jenike & Johanson as a Designer from 2003 to 2005 while he was pursuing his Bachelors degree in Aerospace Engineering from the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.  Brian continued on to attain his Masters Degree in Aerospace Engineering with an emphasis in control systems in 2009.

Following his first tenure at J&J, Brian pursued a career as a professional pilot, followed by a career as a flight test conductor for a major aerospace company.  These careers gave Brian the opportunity to travel all over California and the world, but also solidified Brian’s desire to settle back in San Luis Obispo.  Brian was happy to have the opportunity to come back to J&J and San Luis Obispo, his wife’s hometown.  Since his return, Brian has focused on pneumatic conveying, fluidization systems, and development of in house test equipment and associated control systems.

“What I like best about working at J&J is the ability to interact with a small group of focused and experienced professionals and the constant exposure to unique engineering challenges”.
