As an eleven-year veteran of the United States Air Force, Sokolovich is ready to engage this new mission with a strategic plan consisting of industry partnerships and networks, workforce readiness programs, and the communication of the CRDC’s existing industry achievements and contributions.
As a team player, Sokolovich is ready to build sustainable relationships with industry leaders by opening the lines of communication, and fostering the growth of strategic partnerships between all industries involved in our continued economic success.
