Prior to commencing his career, Fernando A. Turegano II pursued a formal education at Carnegie Mellon University, from which he earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics in 1968. He later received a Master of Fine Arts in drawing and sculpture from Instituto Allende in Mexico in 1975. Presently, Mr. Turegano serves as the chief executive officer and president of both IESG Solutions, Inc., and ISEG-Coatings, Inc. As an executive in the engineering and manufacturing industries, he is responsible for consulting with clients across the globe in relation to corrosion and coatings in a variety of markets, such as the industrial, marine, power, transportation and offshore markets, among many others.
Bolstering decades of experience in the fields of engineering, marketing and sales, Mr. Turegano previously served as the authorized distributor at STOPAQ B.V., as well as a coatings engineer at Jacobs Engineering. Between 1988 and 2008, he was responsible for such tasks as writing coating specifications for industrial projects, including the approval of fabricators and applicators and their application procedures. Moreover, Mr. Turegano served as an international engineering sales support manager and the director of Asian operations for PPG Industries and as the engineering and international offshore manager for Sigma Coatings. Likewise, he was the director of Asian operations for Ameron International and a global sales engineer for General Electric.
Outside of his endeavors within the engineering discipline, Mr. Turegano served the United States Army for three years, who bestowed upon him a Good Conduct Medal. He maintains active affiliation with Toastmasters International, who also recognized him as a Distinguished Toastmaster for his success in public speaking. Furthermore, he is a member of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers and the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (formerly known as the Steel Structures Painting Council).
As he progresses further in his career, Mr. Turegano eventually intends to pass down his businesses to his son, John-Marco, and transition into a career in the arts. He would like to become a full-time sculptor, having already designed and constructed the sculpture “Sea Bird” in Corpus Christi, Texas.
