Brian O’Leary is the Americas Sales Manager for KIC. Brian brings with him over a decade of industrial sales, marketing and management experience in North & South America, Mexico and Asia. Prior to joining KIC, Brian worked for Sono-Tek, a manufacturer of spray fluxing equipment where he spent much of his time in Asia working in the overseas operations of Western OEMs and CMs.
Drawing upon his experience, both here and abroad, Brian has recently co-authored, with Michael Limberg, the 2009 Profiling Guide, for the reflow process. “There is a strong need in this economy for tools that help customers get their process in spec quickly, accurately and can be sustained over time. In Asia, I provided solutions to bridge the knowledge gap between what was developed by talent here at home and what needed to work abroad. This same knowledge gap is found in the U.S. now where talent is being lost and those remaining behind have little to no experience in developing and maintaining a modern reflow process.” Brian earned his MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
