Claude “Leo” Going Jr., Senior Nondestructive Examination Engineer at General Electric, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership.

After graduating from high school, Mr. Going joined the United States Air Force. Inspired by his father, who was an Air Force veteran, he had hoped to build a career in the military. However, after serving as a military policeman for one year, he became involved in nondestructive testing. Finding a passion for the field, Mr. Going became certified by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing in radiography, ultrasonic, magnetic, particle, and penetrant methods in 1986. Later, in 2003, he earned a Bachelor of Science in professional aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which was followed by a Master’s in aeronautical sciences in 2006.

Throughout his illustrious career, Mr. Going has worked with a multitude of established organizations. Backed by experience in the nuclear power industry, the fossil fuel power industry, and chemical systems, he loaned his services to the Pratt & Whitney Space Propulsion for six years. Following this role, he excelled at the Kennedy Space Center, remaining there for six years before becoming a senior nondestructive examination engineer at General Electric. Mr. Going demonstrated consistent success in this position for ten years. Reflecting on his 42 years of success, he credits his many accomplishments to the early professional experience he acquired as a boy scout. Grateful for what he learned, Mr. Going maintains affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America today. He is a life member of the National Eagle Scout Association, as well as the National Rifle Association of America and the Oathkeepers Organization. Looking toward the future, Mr. Going is excited to retire and travel the world.
