About Us

 

Response Dynamics' Engineering team is headed up by:

A brief introduction to the Response Dynamics team:

 

·    Reuben Hale, PE, our President, founded Response Dynamics over 38 years ago, 1984.  Reuben also loves the outdoors, and kayaks over 100 times a year, most frequently in the San Francisco Bay. 

·    Henry Bittner, MSME, our VP of Engineering, is now in his 30th year as a key member of Response Dynamics.  When Henry gets a chance, he loves family time at the beach as well as camping, surfing and hang-gliding.  

·    Susan Reno, MSE, our Lead Engineer on Monitoring Projects, has been a key part of our team for more than 15 years.  Susan is the go-to mechanic and always finds unique and practical engineering solutions to difficult  design problems.  Among her favorite free-time enjoyments are crafting activities and playing board games.

·    Campbell Dixon, BSME, is in his 6th year with Response Dynamics, providing brilliant insights and great energy in our work place.  Campbell often works on his treadmill-mounted computer system, after riding miles up into the Oakland hills to our offices (on his 2-speed unicycle!), and frequently spends his lunch hours at the climbing gym.

·    Phil Francis, BSE, has been working with Response Dynamics since 2017.  Phil provides his broad spectrum of skills in electrical engineering, mechanical systems, vibration and acoustic analysis.  His problem solving skills are top notch and he often can find "out-of-the-box" solutions to difficult problems.  Phil's hobbies include building computers, fighting robots, RC, and the often wry witticism.

·    Brendan Hale, BA, heads-up our website development and digital marketing work, since 2016.  You'll find Brendan toiling in the kitchen during his free time, making some new vermicelli bowl recipe or an old staple like gumbo that he's been crafting for years. And if not in the kitchen, then on the couch with a history book and tea or playing board games with friends.

We love what we do and are at the very top of our unique field. 

Response Dynamics Vibration Engineering, Inc. is located in the brown-shingle office building at Oakland's Lincoln Square at 
4110 Redwood Road, Suite 301 
Oakland, CA 94619
