Tracy Solomon – President and CEO

I’m a native to Greeneville, TN – TEVET’s hometown. I grew up on my family farm, where I worked side by side with my family as a child and in later years worked in the community at various jobs. I participated in Civil Air Patrol (CAP) program during high school, graduated from South Greene High School, and then entered the Navy following my family’s heritage of service to country. My father was a Vietnam veteran who was wounded during the TET Offensive and was a Purple Heart Recipient. My grandfather was wounded and received a Purple Heart while fighting the Japanese in the Philippines during World War II. In the Navy, I honorably served my country as an aviation electronics technician and as a selected member of the U.S. Navy Color/Honor Guard for high profile Presidential, honorary, and sporting events. It was during this time of my life that he developed a passion for electronic test equipment and technology.

Upon my completion of military service, I entered the business world and developed my skills, connections, and most importantly an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for solving business needs which lead me to establishing TEVET. From a humble home office beginning, TEVET is now one of the leading service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses in the Aerospace & Defense industry. I am proud of our company culture that is respected by TEVET’s industry partners, customers, and employees alike – each that are located across the nation, but have a sense of family tied to our headquarters in East Tennessee.

Outside of TEVET, I contribute time and resources to my surrounding community. I want to give back and share my success with the place that I call home. I serve as an active board member for Holston Home for Children, an advocate for SteppenStone Youth Treatment Services, a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapter, work closely with the development of the Greeneville High School JROTC program — which has been transformed from being defunded to now a nationally ranked program – and actively promote the revitalization of historic, downtown Greeneville through being a patron of the arts and owner of the recently renovated Capitol Theater. I believe that the life force of a community – and the cornerstone of TEVET culture – depends on its members being actively involved, and I hope to continue to exemplify this in my life.

John Vandewater – CFO

Although I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Canada, my career path has taken me as far as Japan, France, and the great state of Texas for 14 years. Through this time, I had the pleasure of working in various roles including product marketing/business development, product line management, and financial planning — all of which required creating complex technical solutions to meet both corporate and market objectives.

Family was always a central consideration and the prime reason my family relocated back to Canada. It allowed us to connect back with the community in which we were raised and keep children in the lives of grandparents and cousins.

TEVET is also a closely knit ‘family’ that brings together our collective corporate experiences. Each day gives us an opportunity to provide a small business solution to large business problems. We look forward to solving yours today.

Debbie Box – VP Operations & Supply Chain

I joined TEVET in June 2017 as the VP of Supply Chain and Operations. My career has been in leadership roles in high-tech supply chains, including Oracle, Microsoft, and most recently, Avnet. I have “top-to-bottom” supply chain/operations experience—having managed supplier development, procurement, planning, production, and logistics.

I was drawn to TEVET’s sense of collaborative spirit and family. I am a firm believer in the power of “teams,” and I am inspired by organizations that empower their employees. As Stephen Covey said, “An empowered organization is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organizational success.”

I am originally from Texas and graduated from the University of Houston with degrees in Biology and Psychology. In 2012, I went back to school to obtain my MBA from Washington State.

When not working, I enjoy teaching online MBA classes, outdoor activities, and watching college sporting events—especially March Madness! My partner and I are extremely happy to be in beautiful Tennessee and look forward to exploring the area.

Ashley Drewes – Director of Business Systems

My passion for small business and technology is what brought me to TEVET. As the Director of Business Systems, my main goal is to ensure that we have the right technology in place to serve our customers and partners. I understand that every customer’s requirements are different and thrive on creating innovative solutions to ensure TEVET exceeds your eProcurement needs.

My career path started after receiving my degree in Business Marketing from Virginia Commonwealth University. After a brief stint in sales, I discovered my knack for process and project management and spent over five years working in operation management and logistics. After realizing I was more intrigued by the systems and technology used to make a business run efficiently, I transitioned to information technology. My diverse experience in sales, marketing, operations, and accounting give me a unique advantage when it comes to delivering the best technical solution for TEVET and customers alike.

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking and traveling to new places with my husband and corgi. I hope to visit every National Park in the next 50 years – my favorite one so far has been Olympic National Park. When I’m not exploring the great outdoors, you can find me listening to podcasts or playing acoustic guitar.

Chuck Heiligenthal – Facilities Manager

I bring a unique, diverse experience and skill set to TEVET. From the analytical mind of an engineer, to the leadership and process knowledge of a manager, to the quick decision making of a successful entrepreneur, I use my past experience to ensure TEVET is always running at its best, with no detail missed.

In addition to my workload at TEVET, I assist with events at the Capitol Theatre and volunteer time in the community.

I also enjoy visiting family in Wisconsin (Go Packers!) and spending time with my granddaughter Elli.

Melissa Landrum – Executive Assistant

I am a goal-setter with over 20 years of business experience in the public, private, nonprofit, and government sectors with a focus in aviation, construction, healthcare, education, and now aerospace and defense with TEVET. I have completed a BSBA degree from the University of Florida and I am completing a MSA degree with a focus in Human Performance Technology from the University of West Florida. I bring my experience, confidence, and go-getter attitude to TEVET. Within my first month with TEVET, I have set goals for strategic change management, internal performance and process improvements, training, and employee development.

Outside of TEVET, I set goals within my personal life. I am an avid reader of non-fiction and a health enthusiast. One personal goal I have set is to have my daily step count match my daily reading word count. When not counting words and steps, I fill my time with photography and videography projects that show off my love for nature. I also practice yoga and find true peace when snorkeling the springs and reefs in my home state of Florida. Any chance that I get to take an adventure, whether as a lone explorer or with my family, you can guarantee I will be there.

Matt Arick – Account Manager

I began my career with TEVET in December 2016. After earning my degree in Legal Studies from Chapman University, I spent seven years in the Biotechnology R&D field serving as Investor Relations Manager for Phage Biotechnology Corp. I then spent five plus years with VTI Instruments Corporation, an industry leading test and measurement manufacturer, where I led an international team of inside sales representatives. While at VTI, I also served as Project Manager for many of the government prime contractor program builds VTI was involved with. I love dealing with people!

While at TEVET, I hope to build upon the already fantastic relationships in place with key government contractors and introduce this great company to a broader industry range.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer with old friends, gardening, antiquing, and hiking with my dog Mr. Chuckles, a golden-doodle, in sunny California.

Stephanie Hardin – Account Manager

I am the dedicated account manager for all Boeing and L-3 locations and divisions. I have over 10 years in sales experience with immense success in creating strong customer relationships. I will continue to build upon my and TEVET’s past successes in customer relationship building, innovative solutions, and creating a positive procurement experience every time you connect with TEVET.

When I’m not solving procurement problems, I am working on social problems in the local community. I currently volunteer at the local library, Second Harvest Food Bank, and a local organization dedicated to children’s health and educational growth, READ N PLAY. I can source my desire to serve the community throughout my heritage from my great-grandfather, who was President of Guatemala, and to my mother who is presently involved in the community.

In my downtime, I travel with my husband and three-year-old daughter. We go to local concerts, kayak, and hike the great Smoky Mountains in which we live in. Even our three dogs get to tag along on some adventures. All in all, I have traveled to 13 countries and have attended over 300 concerts.

Adreanna Weems – Sales Support

I started working at TEVET in February 2017. I bring a background in customer service and logistics. Beginning in high school, my work experience has revolved around providing the best and most effective customer service. From the fast-food industry, a call center for a logistics company, the sole customer solutions coordinator at a manufacturing company, and most recently a waitress at a fine-dining restaurant, I have seen all aspects of customer service and have built my professional career on these values.

During the warmer months, I enjoy spending time on the lake, and I camp and kayak most weekends. Every year I plant a garden using the techniques my grandmother taught me and then can vegetables for my family. I also enjoy skiing in the colder months and go any time I get the opportunity! In my spare time, I also enjoy volunteering at the local animal shelter.

Kerri Lane – Senior Account Manager

I am the Senior Account Manager for BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin. I have been with TEVET for almost 10 years and am consistently recognized for delivering on commitments, creating leading edge solutions, and taking bold initiatives. I consider it an honor to work for and with customers that support the warfighter.

Born and raised in New Jersey, I moved to Chicago while finishing my Master’s Degree. Now I love the beautiful East Tennessee mountains and have an unmatched, unique accent.

When I’m not solving procurement problems, I’m enjoying time with my family and friends. I’m an active member of my church, as well as an advocate for autism. I mentor several high school age children in the local community. My house is always open and my refrigerator always stocked for welcoming kids with a safe and fun place to hang out. I also enjoy reading, taking my younger children to the playground, and visiting baseball stadiums to take in a game.

Sondra Wyatt – Account Manager

I joined TEVET because I am a firm believer that “all things are put into your life for a reason.” Most of my career was spent on the sales and service side of semiconductor manufacturing companies. After 19 years in the industry and a workforce reduction, I moved back to the Northeast Alabama area to be close to my family.

One instance after another presented itself, all leading me down a path to TEVET. I wanted to work for a company that was collaborative and shared like values. I wanted the opportunity to contribute my acquired knowledge and make a difference.

My goal is simple – strive daily to deliver the best. This applies to customers, coworkers, family, and friends!
Outside of work, I’m a passionate chef and gardener and love spending time with my two giant Great Pyrenees, Gus and Sadie.

Laurie Crilly-Mason – Client Support Specialist

I came to TEVET with a diverse background that spans from working in the executive office of an upscale resort to teaching wilderness survival and helping to train military MPs in martial arts. The one thing that has been consistent is my sense of patriotism that inspires me to perform at the highest level in supporting the warfighter. I have a high sense of urgency when it comes to customer satisfaction and strive to exceed expectations in customer interaction.

I have a large family including both children and grandchildren. They have impacted my sense of duty along with my sense of adventure. Weekends are spent camping, backpacking, exploring—somewhere on the water—or taking a road trip.

My community activities include supporting the Wounded Warrior project, North Greene Band Boosters, and the Baileyton Elementary Association. I’m also involved in my local church, Grace Fellowship of Greeneville.

Shannon Bostwick – Sales Administration/Onsite Support

I was born and raised in central Nebraska. Following life’s crazy path, I ultimately transplanted to Colorado and grew new roots in the Denver area.

My interests have taken me in many directions over the years. My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources Management with a minor in Homeland Security and Paralegal degree studies. I have also had various training in supporting business processes including some for personal interest.

I have a strong and diverse service-centric foundation over several industries: food service (dining room and kitchen), hospitality, and beauty (salon service, retail, and wholesale sales), plus time in management in each of these fields. Ultimately, I moved into non-technical sales/customer service of test and measurement equipment where I have been enthusiastically serving industry customers for nearly 17 years. My personal slogan is “How can I help YOU today!?”

Currently, I am one of TEVET’s Sales Administrators. I provide exclusive procurement support for Lockheed Martin where I am onsite with Space Systems Company at their Deer Creek Facility in the Rocky Mountain foothills west of Denver.

Evie Webster – Senior Account Manager

My professional career has evolved in two very diverse directions. After receiving my MA degree, I started out providing in-home family therapy to families of seriously emotionally disturbed youth and chronic juvenile offenders. The goal was “deinstitutionalization” – keeping families together by helping them develop skills needed to problem solve and communicate effectively with each other.

Moving back to East Tennessee has been a serendipitous journey. I found myself entering the world of business as Manager of International Operations and now as Sr. Account Manager at TEVET with an aerospace and defense customer base. A far stretch from what I was accustomed, yet intertwined in a manner that made my clinical skills valuable in the business world. Now, after five plus years at TEVET, I find myself embracing this path and have realized the diverse nature of my ability to succeed at whatever life puts before me.

Every day I strive to learn something new and enjoy my love for animals. I volunteer my time and make monthly donations to the local Humane Society in Greeneville. The highest compliment ever paid to me was “when I pass on, I want to come back as one of your dogs.” Now that’s a compliment I’ll take over a handful of money any day.

Blane Johnson – Order Management Specialist

My professional career has evolved tremendously in just a short year of being on the team here at TEVET. I have learned from the ground up and created a strong foundation of skills to better solve problems for the customer. By becoming proficient in procurement skills from the beginning, I plan to master all that it takes to become your dependable Sales Support Specialist.

My first job was waiting tables, making my customer service and work ethic skillsets very strong and proficient. I learned that the personal touch means the most to customers.

I have a deep passion for horses and barrel racing. I compete most weekends within the Southeast region. It is the fuel to my competitive spirit and continues to challenge me not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. Working at TEVET provides me the challenges I love each and every day.

Daffney Harris – Client Support Specialist

While teaching and government contracting sound like two different worlds, lessons learned through my early career in teaching can be applied to my position at TEVET. As a teacher, I was a problem solver using skills such as: communication, emotional intelligence, and being keenly aware of current and oncoming needs. I look forward to growing relationships and helping solve all your procurement needs.

I am very active within our local community sports organizations and have a passion for ensuring children have a happy and HEALTHY future!

In my free time, I love hanging out with my kids, traveling, kayaking, and attending music festivals. Growing up a competitive gymnast and gymnastics instructor, I’m ready to flip over backwards for you!

Nessie Brown – Government Sales

I came to TEVET from a background in the financial services industry where I spent seven years helping families planning for their future. It was here that I was given the nickname “Southern Comfort” for my calming and friendly demeanor. Having obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Computer Science, I have always had a passion for technology, analytical thinking, and helping others, which is what brought me to TEVET. As part of the TEVET family, I have held roles ranging from sales, support, shipping, and IT.

I like the “simple things” in life and often aim for peace and quiet with close friends. I have a love for video games, superhero movies, and internet culture where I have met and made friends with various people from all over the world.

Casey Coyne – Demand Generation Lead

From a young age working hayfields on my family farm to a competitive 15-yearlong softball career that carried me overseas to play for the USA junior team and to ETSU for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, I have always believed in a strong work ethic along with success in a team environment. These two characteristics were obvious when I was introduced to TEVET. Combine that with a company that is focused on helping the surrounding community, which I grew up around, and supporting current and retired warfighters, which I am married to one and have a family full of them, made the choice to be a part of the TEVET team a “no-brainer.”

Outside of TEVET, I continue to be involved in my local community through coaching youth softball lessons and fundraising for many local outreach organizations through participating in 5Ks.

I enjoy hiking, traveling, attending music and food festivals, working on my family farm, going on weekend adventures, competing in Spartan Races and becoming more athletic, and rooting on the Atlanta Braves.

MaKinna Lane – Marketing Communications Manager

I’m your dedicated Account Manager ready to help with all your lab and test equipment needs. I have over 13 years of experience in sales and being an advocate for my customers. I want to continue building your relationship with TEVET by creating a positive procurement experience every time you reach out to TEVET. In addition to everyday procurement problems, I love creating long-term innovative solutions through eCommerce, new buying channels and contracts, and more.

When I’m not solving procurement problems, I love being involved in the community, especially in advocating for women and children. I volunteer my time teaching children piano, advocating for greater access to STEM education, and as a community board member for the March of Dimes.

Despite being born and raised in East Tennessee, I have spent more than 20 years of Saturdays in the fall rooting for the Crimson Tide, even more impressive when you consider the four LSU fans I live with. When we aren’t yelling at televisions, my family and I love crawfish boils, campfires, hiking, music festivals, and our annual nine-hour minivan road trip (with Dakota the sheltie) to New Orleans to visit family.

Jannie McLain – Database Administrator

I have had various IT roles since the mid-90s (EDI coordinator, Excel trainer, lead programmer, developer, report writer, and senior business analyst.

Over the last 15 years, I have transitioned into assisting with design, construction, rollout, and maintenance of software solutions. For the last year, I have been the Database Administrator at TEVET where I’m responsible for importing the latest pricing and item information into our ERP, complete data analysis, and produce reports for our different departments. What I like most about working at TEVET is the close collaboration I have with everyone as I’m working on each project.

Paul Daniel – Director of Compliance & IT

My skills were developed from my U.S. Naval training and position as a metrology engineer at a globally recognized communications company.

During my U.S. Naval career, I was a successful metrologist supporting numerous Navy Squadrons and Carrier Air Wings. This experience lead and inspired me through this career as a metrology engineer in the communications industry.

Family is very important to me. As a mother of three teenagers, I stay busy with various sports and after-school activities. I also enjoy hiking, working out, and spending time with friends and family. During basketball season, I will cheer on the Kentucky Wildcats, but in the fall, I will be rooting for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Jeremy Grubbs – Procurement Specialist

I moved to East Tennessee from the San Joaquin Valley in Central California. I studied Business Administration at Bakersfield College. I have held diverse full-time positions ranging from airport security, car mechanic, and oilfield crew lead to accounts receivable and accounts payable.

Volunteering with the Bakersfield Police Explorers for seven years, going through the Junior Police Academy, and attending Devil Pups in Camp Pendleton, Calif. in 2005, I have a growing fascination with youth programs and the benefits extended to the participants. I strive to one day contribute to these programs so that the youth of America can continue to experience these life-changing programs.

I enjoy the quiet life East Tennessee provides, a sharp contrast to the busy lifestyle of California. I am no stranger to meeting deadlines and have come to appreciate the ability to slow down and pay attention to the beauty afforded by mother nature and to those that matter most to me. A slow cruise through the country side, a creaky rocking chair on the front porch, or sitting hand-in-hand with that special someone around a fire are my new passions.

Brian Fletcher – AR & Procurement Clerk

I am a Greeneville native who recently joined the TEVET team in September 2017 as an Accounts Receivable and Procurement Clerk.

Fresh out of high school, I joined the United States Marine Corp and served as an Armorer for my division. During my enlistment, I worked with different units to inventory and repair assigned firearms.  Military service instilled a strong work ethic, organizational skills, and sense of teamwork in me. Working at TEVET allows me the opportunity to give service to our country from a different position.

After my service, I received my Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management through Tusculum College.  I have over 10 years of experience working in manufacturing supervision.  My goal at TEVET is to utilize continuous improvement techniques to assist the team in achieving everlasting growth and success.

Jason Hudson – Director of Human Resources

Born and raised in East Tennessee, I decided early in life that I wanted to travel and see the world.  At age 17, I joined the Navy, enticed by the ideas of serving my country and exploring the world.  Twenty-seven years later and after a rewarding career, I retired from the Navy with the realization of how blessed I am to be able to return to East Tennessee.

Early in my career, I served in numerous engineering assignments.  As I advanced, I found my passion for Human Resources, Acquisition, and leadership roles.  I served as the Commanding Officer for NSA Saratoga Springs, NY, as a Defense Fellow in the US Senate, as the Navy’s Human Capital Strategist for the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Manpower & Reserve Affairs) at the Pentagon, and my final assignment was the Deputy Commander for US Military Entrance Processing Command’s Eastern Sector.

Education and training are important in the military and opportunities are plentiful.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Vanderbilt, a Master’s in I/O Psychology from Christopher Newport University, a Master’s from the Naval War College, and my MBA from the University of Tennessee.  I am a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources, a Six Sigma Black Belt, and Defense Acquisition University Level II in program management.

Retiring in 2016, I joined an automotive manufacturing company as their Regional Director of HR supporting a Union facility in Cookeville, TN and a Non-Union facility in Ferris, TX.   Having the opportunity to join Tevet and return to work in the Defense industry was too good of an opportunity to pass up.  I am proud to join an outstanding team of dedicated professionals who truly focus their effort on the customer as the center of our purpose.

As the Data and Content Manager, it drives me to champion innovation, automation, leanness and flexibility supported by effective management of the organizations data.
