ASNT… Creating a Safer World! ™
Wade Jenstead began his career in 1992 after attending Hutchinson Technical College (now Ridgewater College). The associate of applied sciences program provided him training in all NDT disciplines as well as welding and metallurgy. Jenstead was an active member in the Minnesota Student Section of ASNT. During his early years in the industry, he was also active with the ASNT sections throughout the Southeast as a territory salesman. He was fortunate to be mentored by several members during those years.
Jenstead has spent the last 25+ years working with advanced NDT solutions such as phased array ultrasonic testing, full matrix capture/total focusing method, eddy current array, digital radiography, computed tomography, and advanced remote visual inspection. He has held sales leadership positions for the last approximately 15 years with GE Inspection Technologies (now Waygate Technologies), Zetec, and Eddyfi Technologies. He spent around 10 years in global sales roles while working for GE Inspection Technologies, where he had extensive international travel. He has worked to provide NDT solutions in most industry sectors including aviation/space, nuclear, fossil and renewable power, transportation, oil and gas, and manufacturing.
As the current Vice President of Sales – Americas for Eddyfi Technologies, Jenstead continues his passion of helping to solve the industry’s toughest challenges while striving for the best customer experiences.
Jenstead’s interest in serving as Director at Large for ASNT is for the opportunity to give back to an organization that has provided so much to him and the industry as a whole. Jenstead sees the NDT industry continuing to expand and transform at the same time as technologies are advancing. This is concurrent with an aging workforce, which will require fortification by bringing in new/additional personnel/members. He is looking forward to collaborating with fellow ASNT members to further the advancement of this amazing industry, one that truly makes the world a safer place.
