Dear Friends and Customers,
Happy October! Global O-Ring and Seal is entering this fall with some exciting news. We are pleased to announce our new executive team. With the retirement of Bill and Rhonda DeSpain in March, Lauren and I have been working toward our goal of creating a team that would help us usher in the next chapter of Global O-Ring’s story.
The last year has been a time of deep reflection on the strong foundation of Global O-Ring and thinking about our future; our strengths, areas for improvement, and what kind of leadership team we needed to accomplish our goals.
I am pleased to announce the promotion and additions of Lisa Knight, Adam Earnhardt, Jeff Korkowski, and Lauren DeSpain to the Global O-Ring Executive Team. Each brings a set of experiences and expertise necessary to execute our vision. Let me introduce them to you.
Lisa Knight – Vice President, Finance & Accounting
Lisa has more than 16 years of financial leadership experience in both public and private companies. Lisa is responsible for the accounting department and all aspects of financial reporting. However, her job is about more than debits and credits – it’s about “wowing” our customers.
Adam Earnhardt – Vice President, Operations
Adam is a retired veteran of the United States Army and a recent graduate from the Professional MBA program at Texas A&M University. Adam oversees the Operations team including our warehouses, production, purchasing, and inventory. His true passions in life are his family, his faith, Aggie football, and ranch-living.
Jeff Korkowski – Vice President, Sales and Marketing
Jeff has worked for several high-tech companies leading Sales, Marketing and Product Management teams. Driving growth is part of Jeff’s DNA and he believes success is driven through the strategic/coordinated efforts of the sales, marketing, and product teams.
Lauren DeSpain – Vice President
In addition to these new executive staff members, I am also pleased to announce the formal addition to the team of Lauren DeSpain as Vice President. Lauren has been integral to the planning and transition efforts over the last few years, and she will now be responsible for facilities, employee well-being, and corporate culture.
These great leaders, in addition to our other incredible employees, are committed to offering world-class service as we aspire to be the All-Around Better supplier of o-rings and seals.
-Brian DeSpain, President
