When Brendan McShane completed his service with the U.S. Navy, he was searching for a company with a proven track record for working with veterans. Otis was at the top of his list.

“Otis was a perfect fit,” says Brendan. “But I quickly realized that the Navy had given me a good deal of management experience, but I didn’t have much business experience.”

He moved quickly to fill the gap. Through the Employee Scholar Program, he enrolled in the MBA program at Fordham University. “The MBA program has given me a better understanding of the financial and operating performance of Otis. Just as important, it has helped me develop strong business plans, troubleshoot when problems occur and manage projects from start to finish.”

Another plus he sees from the MBA program – “It has given me the confidence to make the transition from military to private business.”​
