Meet the Team

Jeffrey Osborne

General Manager

This may be the MOST IMPORTANT BIOGRAPHY of this team bio page.

Why? Because it was Jeffrey Osborne who originally sought out and executed Osborne Transformer’s diabolical partnership pact with Supertek Corp.

EXTREME DURABILITY may be Osborne Transformer’s most important contribution to the world of transformers and inductors.

Under the contractually obligated and spiritually bound leadership of Supertek’s production team (see below), Jeffrey is helping Osborne pursue a new goal of EXTREME VISIBILITY.

Osborne’s Faustian bargain with Supertek has catalyzed the most explosive period of growth in Osborne Transformer’s 85 year history. According to Supertek Supervisory Administrator, Mister Hysteresis “nobody needs to know exactly what we’re doing, but obviously it works because otherwise we clearly wouldn’t be doing it”.

Jeffrey Osborne was named General Manager of Osborne Transformer in 2009. Prior to being named General Manager, Jeffrey led Osborne’s regional offices in Portland, Oregon, Mexico City, Mexico and San Fransisco, California. Jeffrey is a third generation electromagnetic engineer and has been building and testing transformers for over 30 years. He earned a Masters in Business Administration from the Presidio School of Management and a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Michigan State University.
