    Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) President and co-owner Eren Ozmen first came to the United States by herself at age 23 to earn her MBA after graduating from college in Turkey. When she arrived in the United States, Eren spoke little English and had no financial resources, but she did have a driving entrepreneurial spirit and BIG dreams. To pay for her tuition and support herself during her MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno, she worked night shifts, even cleaning offices at SNC for a few months, and made baklava for a local bakery during her first year at UNR. Eren believed in herself and the American Dream, and she worked very hard to earn her MBA and advance her business career.

    Her husband, Fatih Ozmen, has an equally incredible story. A year before Eren came to the United States, Fatih—a former Turkish cycling champion—came to America to pursue his graduate degree in electrical engineering. Later, he started at SNC as an engineering intern. Fatih and Eren became good friends while supporting each other during these difficult first years. Their friendship grew and they married in 1989. Then, in 1994 they had the opportunity to acquire SNC and, together, grew the company into a global leader in aerospace and defense.

  • Thank you for this! What a remarkable person. Do you know where the photo is taken, surrounded by the aircraft on display?

    The location of that photo is unfamiliar to me.

  • Hopefully these bosses are passing down that sentiment and policy to those in their company and industry.

    There is still a huge wage gap between men and women in comparable fields and jobs.

    As my daughter likes to say. If you want to make more $$, don't take jobs in low paying fields.
