“As an employee-owned company, we take great pride in promoting from within,” said Hernan Olivas, president and chief executive officer for ONEIL. “Erik’s accomplishments, work ethic and demonstrated leadership made him the obvious choice as we envisioned new roles with our various teams."

O’Neil & Associates (ONEIL), an employee-owned company that develops technical publications, training and related product support materials, today announced the promotion of Erik Shelton to vice president of operations. ONEIL also created a business development team to drive strategic growth in specific practice areas.

In his newly created role, Shelton will hold responsibility for the ONEIL operations team, all three of the company’s strategic business units (aerospace, Department of Defense and commercial) and their respective sales teams. In total, he will oversee 113 employee-owners across five sites including Portland, Ore.; Oshkosh, Wis.; Houston, Texas; Melbourne, Fla.; and Miamisburg, Ohio.

“As an employee-owned company, we take great pride in promoting from within,” said Hernan Olivas, president and chief executive officer for ONEIL. “Erik’s accomplishments, work ethic and demonstrated leadership made him the obvious choice as we envisioned new roles with our various teams. We are confident that our operations, business units and sales teams will thrive under Erik’s leadership, and we look forward to his continued success at ONEIL.”

Shelton joined ONEIL as director of operations in 2016 after spending more than 20 years working for Fortune 500 companies, where he served in roles of increasing responsibility in finance, logistics, operations and supply chain management. Shelton holds a Bachelor of Arts in political science, public administration and economics from Miami University, a Master of Business Administration from Xavier University, and is a certified Six Sigma Blackbelt.

As part of the company’s updated reporting structure, ONEIL employee Jim Cardosi was appointed as the organization’s senior director of business development and strategic partners. He and his team will focus on top-tier prospective clients within the aerospace, defense and commercial segments building value at the C-suite level. Bruce Joiner, director of U.S. Air Force programs, will leverage his 35 years of Air Force experience to create new inroads for ONEIL in that space. Both report directly to Olivas.

“ONEIL is taking important steps to align our strategic business priorities with our valuable human capital,” said Olivas. “Jim and Bruce are both incredible assets and bring depth of knowledge to our bench. The creation of a business development function allows ONEIL to allocate resources into key areas of strategic growth and strengthen our sales team as we move the business forward.”
