Curt’s 3 favorite subjects in high school were Art, Auto Shop, and Debate. His guidance counselor thought he would be great at haggling over the price of his paintings in front of a gas station. Instead, he chose a career in product development. Curt was president of Sundberg-Ferar from 1992 until the end of 2018. He helped guide Sundberg-Ferar in its transition from a traditional industrial design firm into a full-service product development company. Curt has been responsible for corporate and project management, project definition, analysis and integration of consumer research results, concept generation and development, engineering and manufacturing coordination, vendor and customer liaison. He has spoken at numerous events on the process of product innovation and is named as primary inventor on dozens of U.S. patents. Curt is now an advisor to the Sundberg-Ferar leadership team.
