As a marine engineering student at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Mr. Cartlidge chose engineering because his grandfather was a civil engineer in New Jersey. He liked to build things, so his father suggested mechanical engineering when he was in high school. His goal has always been to set a level of excellence, to give the best quality of service and design. Mr. Cartlidge worked as a marine engineer early in his career, and earned a MSME from the New Jersey Institute of Technology while serving with the U.S. Naval Reserve. He ultimately earned the rank of commander and stayed with the Reserve until 1991. Through the ‘70s and ‘80s, he worked with legacy companies like Fluor and Merck in various engineering roles. He became associate director of program management with Entech Solar Inc., formerly WorldWater & Solar Technologies, from 2007 to 2009, and worked with Advanced Solar Products as a senior project manager. From 2013 to 2016, Mr. Cartlidge joined Princeton University in a number of roles, notably as a professional engineer of record.
In 1982, Mr. Cartlidge earned a MBA from Temple University, and has been involved in developing patents that advanced knowledge in engineering. In 2001 he completed a MA from the Biblical Theological Seminary. Mr. Cartlidge is a born again Christian who shares the gospel by supporting Christian ministries throughout the world and providing scholarships. He is a member of the board for the Grand Old Gospel Fellowship and also teaches Sunday school and participates in fundraising with Mainland Baptist.
