Nizar Jhaver, CEO and Founder
In 1989, after a long and successful career as a computer chip manufacturer's rep and owner of Comtech, Inc., Nizar started to see a greater and greater need for a customer-focused system integrator in the US to provide a turnkey system solution for many of his process control customers. With that idea in mind, he founded Global American, Inc. with virtually no experience in the Industrial PC sector. For over 20 years, Nizar grew the company through establishing relationships with some of the largest and most respected IPC Manufacturers in Taiwan and China. Global now represents more than 10 overseas factories and manufacturers, and counts thousands of companies as its clients - among them Fortune 500 and Process Control, Aerospace, and Biotech giants. In 2010, Nizar retired, leaving his daughter, Leah Walsh, in charge of all company operations. Nizar has a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
