Daniel J. Meyer
We do much of our planning within our research and development efforts, and my electrical and mechanical engineering backgrounds are extremely helpful when I meet with research. My engineering education . . . was a critical factor in my reception in a technology-based organization like Cincinnati Milacron.

Daniel J. Meyer, received his BSEE from Purdue University in 1958 and his MBA from Indiana University in 1963. Meyer was associated with the accounting firm of Touche Ross & Co. as a manager of management services before joining Cincinnati Milacron, Inc., a company noted for the production of quality machine tools.
