Roger Hinman earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1971, then served four years in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam war. He followed that with a 33-year career in the electronics manufacturing industry, holding a variety of engineering and management positions before retiring in 2008.
