Who was the Head Engineer of the Enterprise before Geordi?
There was a guy named Singh, but I'm not sure he was the chief engineer. Anyway, he was killed off midway through the first season.
Lots of people (mostly losers). There was a Chief Engineer Argyle from Where No One Has Gone Before, that chick from The Naked Now ("These... are... control CHIPS!"), another guy in The Arsenal of Freedom (who had so many arguments with LaForge). A veritable who's who of Starfleet's cream of the crap.
Argyle stands out for me, not just because he was the first and only overweight member of Starfleet until Riker in the later seasons, but because the actor who played the role wrote to me and begged for fan mail, hoping to stay on the show permanently. Seriously.

Okay, so he wasn't pudgy when we first saw him, but how about ST-IV:TVH and later (including TNG) Scotty? Not exactly the slim and svelte Engineer he used to be...

That is very funny that he asked you to write in for him. I make up autographed cast photos using 3x5 cards. I try not only to get the main cast. But, some of the minor cast members (ie-From TNG, Barclay, Nurse Ogawa,etc). But, he was to minor even for me. I guess his campaign didn't work.
