He focuses on operations and supply chain management, quality and process improvement, statistical analysis, facility design, planning and scheduling, and production systems, as well as project management. His manufacturing career spanned over thirty years and took him to six different nations.
Solis was a Mapua Institute of Technology alumnus with a degree in Science Management and Industrial Engineering, having also completed an education certificate program at Nova Scotia Community College.
