What advice would you give to everyone?

"Think big, start small and learn fast." Not my original quote, but important words.

What was your first job?

I started early and had over 10 jobs by the time I graduated college. As a kid I delivered newspapers on my bike and washed cars going door to door in the neighborhood. I also worked as a shoe salesperson at the local NJ mall, sold specialty car parts/accessories and helped make cannolis at a local Italian bakery. In college, I worked at the college bookstore and pub, as an accountant for State of NJ, and also as a limousine driver.

Fun Fact?

One of my first entrepreneurial ventures in high school was buying old muscle cars, fixing them up myself and selling them. I continue to have a passion for cars, particularly classics, including American and imported performance automobiles. I'm also interested electric vehicles and battery technology.

Vincent O'Brien LinkedIn

VP, Business Development

Over 25 years of experience in strategy, leadership, business development, and stakeholder relations for U.S. and international clients. Committed to providing government clients with the best solutions to their Enterprise IT, data analytics and process efficiency needs.

What advice would you give to everyone?

If you find that you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room. Seek out the best, give others your best, never stop learning, never stop growing.

What was your first job?

At 16 years old, I started a house painting business to save money for college. I had to bring my own car battery to test drive the old truck we used to haul ladders and gear. By building a business out of no more than an idea and a couple of tools, I learned that anything is possible if you are committed.

How many countries have you visited?

I've lost count, but I’ve lived in Germany, South Korea, France, Estonia, Afghanistan, Russia, Sweden and China. I’ve been to Siberia, Timbuktu and the Arctic Circle. The Galapagos Islands, Machu Picchu and Cape Town, South Africa are still on my list.

Lead strategic IT initiatives in both the public and private sector with an aim to create business process efficiencies and deliver a return on project investment. Architected and developed enterprise software solutions for local, state, and federal clients.

What was your first job?

My first professional job was the result of an internship with a small software development company. Initially I started as an intern in college managing the company’s infrastructure, databases, and network. The wide and varied experiences over 7 years provided me the perspective I have today on the value and importance each of the IT disciplines brings to the table in delivering a service to our customer.

What's your favorite vacation spot?

My family enjoys getting away to the mountains of western North Carolina and north Georgia to escape the summer heat of Florida. Staying on a cabin on a river is our way to unplug, spend time together, and enjoy the outdoors.

Fun fact?

I’m left-handed, but play basketball right-handed.
