Describe your path to OGSystems.
A friend of mine refered me to OGSystems because he knew Garrett (CEO and co-founder of OGS). I was attracted to OGSystems back in 2010 because it was a small business, it had two leaders who were different and clearly hungry to do defense contracting differently and better, and I felt there was an opportunity to grow and be appreciated, which was something that was very much lacking in the company I was with at that time.
Why have you stayed with OGS for 7+ years?
I have stayed with OGSystems because I have grown as a person and there is opportunity to grow more and help others grow more. The culture of Owning the Outcome is infectious, and I love it.
What has been the most exciting thing you’ve seen in OGSystems’ evolution as a company?
One word: TRANSPARENCY! Simply put, transparency allows all members of OGSystems to make a difference, to Own the Outcome. I feel the Merriam-Webster's Dictionary's definition of transparency explains why I find OGSystems' transparency exciting (and refreshing) because the company is:
a : free from pretense or deceit
b : easily detected or seen through
c : readily understood
d : characterized by visibility or accessibility of information especially concerning business practices
What hasn’t changed about OGS in the last 7 years?
The ability to reach out and communicate with leadership; to be heard and know your comments, insight and feedback are valued. OGSystems has been able to continue access and intimacy with all its people even though it has grown substantially. It challenges its people, and it remains a company where everyone pitches in and we leave our egos at home.
