Terry attended Monsignor Bonner High School in the suburbs of Philadelphia. There he became a member of the school’s crew team, spending afternoons rowing on the Schuylkill River. Prompted by his thirst for technical knowledge and desire to advance his rowing, he went on to Columbia University in New York City. In 1982 he graduated from Columbia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Mechanics with a strong concentration in applied mathematics.
During his tenure at Columbia he worked as an intern with Stone and Webster, joining the firm full time after graduation and working on the design of nuclear power plants. Foreseeing the decline of the nuclear power industry, he moved his talents to Boston and joined Chas. T. Main. At Main he was a mechanical engineer working in the industrial power group. While at Main he developed PC-based applications for performing heat balance and fluid flow modeling systems.
Terry then founded Waldron Engineering when it became evident there was a need for highly skilled engineering services with responsive customer focus for the new independent power industry. For the last 24 years he has lead Waldron to become an industry leader in the CHP and private power industry.
When not offering solutions to clients, Terry spends time with his wife and five children. He enjoys running, rowing, biking and devouring historical novels. But, a true geek at heart, he has the most fun developing ideas for new energy technologies – some of which will soon come to fruition.
