In 2014, Bruce Pearman and Johnny Podrovitz formed “P-Squared Group”, with the mission to bring cutting edge technical products to market. With necessity being the mother invention, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) / Drone market quickly became the focus. The need for added flight time became apparent when Johnny was taking his first UAV pilot certification training and found that they were constantly having to charge batteries the old fashioned way; with a generator and a bunch of single unit chargers. There had to be a better way!
Bruce and Johnny each bring decades of product design and business development expertise to the fastest growing electronics product market segment in history. Bruce holds an MSEE with honors. He has designed and managed hundreds of complex product design projects for customers, businesses and governments of all sizes around the world.
Johnny has successfully designed, built, and sold a complex technical telecom expense management outsourcing organization to the one of the largest invesment firms in the world.
Rick Janes rounds out the executive team bringing his business development skills to the company. He has been a sales leader throughout his 25 plus year career building and running sales and marketing teams across a wide spectrum of fast-paced technical organizations.
Along with many decades of business and engineering design experience, this team has lived their careers with two primary tenets:
- At the end of the day, you and your business are only as good as your customers say you are. Therefore, you must lead everyday making sure customer service is the number one driver of your business – customer service must be your “business religion”.
- No business can ever make and/or ship any product that they would not proudly give to their friends and family to use.
