Mr. Derrek Child,  VP, MBA- is a Marine Corp Combat Veteran, whose leadership has been tried and tested. After returning from Iraq as a squad Leader, and receiving an honorable discharge in 2004, Derrek took his experience, and leadership, into the business world.  Like you, and many people who were raised in blue collar families, Derrek has never been afraid of hard work. After taking an entry level position, to support himself while attending college, Derrek was quickly promoted to supervisor. Under his direction shipping errors decreased, efficiency increased and moral was up. In 2009 Derrek took his leadership expertise and joined the Department of Workforce Services for the State of Utah. Again Derrek quickly found himself in leadership rolls, and was promoted to supervisor. This was a trying time for the department as their primary responsibility is to keep the unemployment fund solvent, which is no small task during a recession. Combining his creativity with his expertise in finance, and leadership, Derrek made great contributions that increased efficiency, decreased costs, and helped aid in keeping the fund solvent. Derrek’s greatest strengths are his creativity, drive, and leadership. He thrives on challenges, and is able to think outside the box to come up with effective solutions. Derrek recently teamed up with Carroll Communications of Myrtle Beach, and is looking forward to using his expertise to be a contributing member on a wonderful team. Derrek received his Associates in Accounting, BS in Business Administration, and MBA from Stevens-Henager College.

R. Henson,  Trainer 

(Not pictured)

I have been working in the US Army’s Special Operations community either as an operator or a trainer for over 22 years. During this time, I have worked with or trained military personnel and police officers in 31 countries. I have been to every shooting school the Special Forces have to offer, including Sniper School and our 8 week CQB course. The last two years of my 12 years in the Army was spent as a primary shooting and hand to hand instructor for the 7th Special Forces Group, and I still live just outside of Ft. Bragg NC to this day. Within a few years of leaving the Army I was able to complete a Masters Degree in International Relations with an emphasis on National Security, and I still travel as a trainer, consultant and sometimes operator. Recently I have helped other companies develop training and security programs for, Grand Coulee Dam, Glen Canyon Dam, Dept. of Energy Nuclear Transport Teams, and the AMTRAK Rail Marshalls. I also still routinely provide training in around Ft. Bragg NC to Special Operations Forces.

After retiring from the Marine Corps in 2004, he began recreational scuba diving, and advanced to the rating of Rescue Diver.  In 2006 he joined the Fifth District Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. in Clarksville, MD and began service as a Public Safety Diver and firefighter. He continued advancing his diving certifications, becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) in 2008 and a PADI Public Safety Diver Instructor in 2011.  Following successful completion of the PADI Course Director Training Course in June 2015, he earned the rating of PADI Course Director, the highest professional rating in recreational scuba diving.  In addition to the full range of PADI courses through Instructor Development, he teaches 23 PADI Specialty Courses, two PADI Distinctive Specialty Courses, and is a PADI Instructor Trainer in 20 PADI Specialty/Distinctive Specialty courses.  He is an Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer, an instructor with the Handicapped Scuba Association International, and an Instructor Trainer for the full range of Divers Alert Network courses.
Bob Sullivan, VP, is a 35-year Navy veteran who served in both enlisted and officer ranks through a variety of operator, technician, manager, administrative and executive leadership positions throughout his career. He has been stationed on a Knox-class FF, a Spruance-class DD, three Aegis CGs and two Nimitz CVNs, his last sea tour as commissioning Combat Systems Officer of the USS GEORGE H W BUSH.
Bob has experience in a wide-spectrum of communications equipment in the MF-EHF world, Interior Communications (SPP/IVCS), SITE, Ethernet/Fiber/WIFI unclassified and multi-classified LAN/WANs, RADARS (2D/3D air-search, surface, air-control and automatic landing systems), RF/SAT/Inertial/RLG Navigation systems, CIWS, SeaSparrow and RAM weapon systems and yes..even good ole POTS.
Bob, as commissioning Commanding Officer of the Center for Surface Combat Systems Unit Great Lakes, helped usher in the second phase of the Navy’s Revolution In Training. He took his command from a primary self-paced Computer Based Training format to focus more heavily, using principles from the Science of Learning, on use of an Integrated Learning Environment (ILE), Simulation, Hands-on and instructor-led topics. All of which helped to decrease student under instruction time while increasing the much needed apprentice level trained ET, FC, GM, IC, OS, BM, and QM ratings to the Fleet.
He is published in Fathom and Ship’s Safety Bulletin articles.
Bob brings a passion for electronics and technology to Carroll Communications. And enjoys being a part of the cutting edge technologies of today and the tie-in to the legacy products which evolved them.
