By "An engineer by formation", I simply wanted to say that he is an engineer by education, by training, by former professional activity if you prefer. I hope it is clearer now!

I must have read this expression a few times before being ready to use it as if it was natural, normal. Or I might be incorrect using such an expression. People who are better at English than I am, feel free to tell me if this expression "engineer by formation" is completely wrong or not.

It is wrong and makes no sense in English. (I do understand how difficult it is to learn a new language and make sense of it, so more credit to you for attempting to use a new word, and then for working to understand it better.)

I still have to disagree strenuously with your notions about this KR person.

Take care.
