Ned is a dynamic professional with a diverse background that spans both the military and corporate world. Born and raised in northeast Ohio, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BS in Business Administration. For the past decade, he’s been an integral part of the Orion Talent team, holding various roles, including Sales Team Lead, Senior Account Executive, and Exempt Recruiter, with a mission to aid companies in identifying, attracting, and retaining military veteran talent for their teams. Prior to his time with Orion, he had a successful career in retail management, working with Walgreens during a period of rapid growth, and played a key role in opening more than 30 stores across markets from Ohio and Pennsylvania south to North Carolina.
Before venturing into the corporate world, Ned proudly served in the US Army as an Airborne Combat Engineer and Assistant Operations NCO, deploying to Kosovo as part of the NATO-led peacekeeping mission, KFOR. He is dedicated to helping those who have served our country in times of peace and war, and believes that improving access to mental health care for our nation’s veterans is a vital mission that
all Americans can support.
Ned now lives in central North Carolina between Fort Liberty and Raleigh with his wife Carrie and their blended family of 3 boys, 1 girl, and 2 dogs. He likes to spend his time outdoors in the mountains of western Carolina, at the Carolina coast, or relaxing by the pool or firepit in their backyard.
