Terry Schladetzky, Owner, Personal History
Emend opened for business in January of 2000 and was founded by owner Terry Schladetzky. Terry has more than 20 years of experience in the areas of server management, information technology, business management, and marketing. Terry began his career as a clerk working for Unisys Corporation, a prominent defense contractor in the 80's, at the age of 16. Six short months after that, Terry completed his first professional computer program for Unisys and was promoted to work in the information systems department. By the age of 18, Terry had been the first active high school student to be bestowed supervisory responsibilities at Unisys.
In college, Terry studied network engineering and participating the Novell CNE program, but majored in Computer Science. He also spent a great deal of time taking courses in Business Law and Small Business management.
On June 12, 1987, Ronald Reagan stood at the Berlin Wall and pleaded, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
Mr. Gorbachev did, and Unisys’s days as a defense contractors became numbered.
After Unisys, Terry began working for Wilwood Engineering and played a vital role in helping to turn Wilwood into market leader for disc brake systems in the NASCAR market. In the early 90's nobody could compete with Wilwood and Terry brought an entirely new set of skills to the organization by designing their IT infrastructure using cutting edge technology that streamlined their production process.
In January of 2000, Terry opened Emend so that he could continue do what he loves.
