Mr. Ruth currently serves as a senior product development engineer at KCH Engineered Systems/ECS, a role he has held since 2023.

Before accepting his current position, Mr. Ruth excelled as a lead design engineer at WestRock Company from 2020 to 2023, refining his skills in engineering and design by leading projects that required innovative solutions. His industry profile is further defined by his dedicated work as a freelance designer and draftsman with Truthdesign, a company he launched in 2002 and managed until 2019, and Mr. Ruth contributed his creative talents to Flexovit Abrasives USA Inc. from 2003 to 2007 as a valuable member of the marketing unit.

He also thrived as the lead senior industrial designer at The Vollrath Company from 2009 to 2020, and it was during this period that he achieved what he considers his most significant accomplishment: working with professional sports teams in North America, and culminating with the New York Jets and New York Giants on retail, food and beverage designs that were featured in their new $1.5 billion stadium, an achievement that showcased his work to an audience of 40 million Americans on live TV.

With diverse interests that extend to spirits and culture, Mr. Ruth has prospered in a broad array of vocations.
