Meet the Global American Management Team
Nizar Jhaver, CEO and Founder
In 1989, after a long and successful career as a computer chip manufacturer's rep and owner of Comtech, Inc., Nizar started to see a greater and greater need for a customer-focused system integrator in the US to provide a turnkey system solution for many of his process control customers. With that idea in mind, he founded Global American, Inc. with virtually no experience in the Industrial PC sector. For over 20 years, Nizar grew the company through establishing relationships with some of the largest and most respected IPC Manufacturers in Taiwan and China. Global now represents more than 10 overseas factories and manufacturers, and counts thousands of companies as its’ clients - among them Fortune 500 and Process Control, Aerospace, and Biotech giants. In 2010, Nizar retired, leaving his daughter, Leah Walsh, in charge of all company operations. Nizar has a degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
Leah Walsh, President
In 2006, Leah joined Global American and began to learn the ropes from the bottom up. As a former Advertising Account Director, Leah's background of strong customer-service and sales focus quickly lead her to take over the sales and marketing for the organization. At the time of her father's retirement, Leah had grown to Vice President and General Manager - overseeing all of Global's day-to-day operations.
Bo Harron, Technical Director/Director of Engineering
As an integral member of the Global team for the last 8 years, Bo brings his over 10 years’ experience in the Quality Assurance field (within the Metal Finishing, Aerospace and Nuclear Industries) and his strong technical ability to the table as he oversees all Engineering and Technical-related areas within Global. From working on the floor to conversing with customers to help them find solutions for their application needs, Bo's knowledge and expertise make him a key member of the Global team.
Teri Heatherington, Controller
In 2002, Teri joined Global at a pivotal time in our growth, and proved her abilities went far beyond the Account Assistant role she came on board to perform. Now, as our Controller, Teri oversees all financial functions within the company. Teri has a B.S. in Accounting.
Cathy Perault, Customer Service and Sales Support Manager
Cathy joined Global in 2004 as Sales Administrator but quickly rose through the ranks till she became, only two years later, manager of her department. Day-to-day, Cathy ensures that Global maintains the highest standard of customer service and support to our customers and potential customers. Prior to Global, Cathy served as Manager of Information Systems for Tyson Foods. She has an MBA and BA in Information Systems Technology with a Minor in Accounting.
Don Hollen, Marketing Manager
Hired as Web Developer in 2007, Don was tasked with taking an antiquated website and “updating” it.
