Meet The CTS Team
Co-Founder & CEO
With over two decades as a well traveled and successful business owner, Katie brings her creativity, diverse knowledge and dynamic results-oriented approach to every part of CTS!
I love how flexible, loyal and dependable our entire team is. I love that every day is something new and different and something else to figure out how to build or improve. I love to see the team happy and getting fit and functioning more like a family than a bunch of co-workers. Plus I really love that I get to wear dragon slippers to work and that I get to work with my husband Iain!
Co-Founder & President
With over a decade in Operations Management and Business Development, Iain brings his sharp mind, quick wit and great communication to the leadership of CTS and keeps us growing fast!
I love what we have created at CTS over the last few years. The people we have are the best team I’ve ever worked with and we all look out for each other. Things are not always easy but there’s nowhere else I’d rather be, shoulder to shoulder with Katie and Lou, building from humble beginnings to a company and culture that I’m truly proud of being a part of.
Luis is one of the most resourceful men on the planet and with over 2 decades specializing in electronics manufacturing, we are very lucky that he calls CTS home!
I’ve spent more than 2 decades in the electronics manufacturing sector and I can truly say CTS is unlike any manufacturer I’ve worked for in the past. Business is always handled in a responsible way and it’s easy to perceive it’s about people and relationships more than it is about profit. Every business likes to believe they can create an environment their staff will love and be attached to, but cave in when the pressure is great. Katie and Iain have stayed true to their vision and true to their values. They are sincerely interested in the well-being of the staff inside and outside of the workplace. The environment is friendly, healthy and challenging. I feel my input is valued and I can truly make a difference for my co-workers and for our clients. It’s a warm feeling when your boss is also your friend!
