On the Job with: Herb Vazquez

Written by OSG



Featured employee: Herb Vazquez
Title: Engineering/Production Control/Inspection Manager
Tenure with OSG: 25 years

For Herb Vazquez, Engineering Manager at the OSG Parma Facility, his career hasn’t been on one straight trajectory. It has been more like a jungle gym where you can climb up to the next level using different paths to get where you want to go. Herb has held 5 different positions in his 25 years at OSG. He served as a production control coordinator, Engineer Assistant, Jr. Designer, Customer Service Coordinator and Systems Engineering Manager prior to his current position.

 

“Change is good,” Herb said smiling. “Having been exposed to different facets of our company has helped me understand our business from different perspectives,” he added. With his diverse knowledge and experience, he is able to lead and assist not only his engineering department, but also other departments to make OSG a stronger team.

 

In his personal life, Herb also has experienced a positive change a few years ago when he became a father. “The entire experience of becoming a parent for the first time has been the greatest occurrence in my life,” said Herb. “Even during the most hectic days, I try to take time out to do something that recharges my family battery.” Herb and his family enjoy traveling to see the different parts of the world. “Stepping outside of your comfort zone by going to unfamiliar destinations is a liberating experience unlike any other,” said Herb. “Our new goal is to learn and explore new cultures.”
