SENIOR DESIGN MANAGER

41 YEARS with O'Gara | Started on the floor as an Armor Fabricator

It's very satisfying to know you're actually protecting people's lives.  Some of the reports we get back from our customers tell us about vehicles that have been attacked and the occupants walked away and returned safely to their families.

What differentiates O'Gara is that we do a lot more engineering and design work before building.  We conduct research and testing on all the materials we use to provide the best solutions for our customers.

I'm hoping not to retire for a long time.  I like the people here and the job.  Everyone is dedicated to their work and take pride in what they're doing.  I also like seeing the company grow like it is now.  That motivates me to inspire my team and support the leadership in their vision.
