After graduating with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Cory began his professional career in the semiconductor industry. He gained a wide range of experiences ranging from manufacturing, leading international design centers, to running a large product line in a publicly traded company. Cory’s next adventure was as the Chief Operating Officer at Cadwell Laboratories, a private medical device company focused on neurodiagnostics. During his tenure at Cadwell, Cory earned an Executive MBA from the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business. In early 2015 Cory was honored to take the reins of BeamReaders from his father, Tom. Cory has the wonderful privilege of being married to Amber and raising their four young children with her. In his moments of free time Cory strives to be active outdoors with his kids tagging along on the ski hill, surf wave, or mountain bike.
