Derrick was raised with his older sister in Southern Ohio. He attended Ohio University majoring in Political Science – Public Law and minoring in Philosophy. After earning his degree, he added a little adventure to his college experience by studying abroad in Alicante, Spain.
Derrick returned to Ohio and discovered a passion for sales and working on industrial and technical applications. Wanting to learn more about industrial applications, more specifically automation, he accepted a sales position in industrial solutions.
Derrick was introduced to A.G.T. during development of the AGT800 laser gauge. He became fascinated with the process of developing new technology and resolving troublesome application issues while helping A.G.T. develop our patented laser gauging system.
After nearly ten years of industrial distribution sales, an opportunity arose to join A.G.T. Developing new technology, and selling in untapped markets was a career choice he was eager to take advantage of.
Derrick lives in Delaware, Ohio with his fiancée Natali and their dog Layla.
