When George joined the NAC team in 1979, all he had in his pocket was a comb to maintain his feathered locks. Straight out of the local Vo-Tech, George was trained as a machinist. He was soon promoted to supervisor of the department. During this time, it became apparent that George had a knack for thinking outside the envelope. His creative solutions for everyday problems made him stand out from the crowd. By 1991, George was appointed head of the engineering department. His independent thinking has led to many cost cutting technologies for NAC. When the Executive Vice President position opened in 1996, George Reed was the first and only choice.

George juggles his professional life with a busy family life. When he’s not coming up with new ideas to save on corporate production costs, he divides his time between his wife, Susan, and their four children.
