Michael Swyers joined Five Nines in 2015 following a 20 year active duty career in the Navy. Michael flew F/A-18’s and simultaneously served as the Training and Development Officer and Assistant Operations Officer. While in the Navy, he managed civilian and enlisted personnel, performed continuous process improvement and oversaw the reduction in unnecessary overhead resulting in $8,000,000 in savings. Swyers also reduced the required training period from 35 weeks to 28, without reducing the quality of the pilots produced.
Michael uses his experience, process improvement skills, and training/development strengths to oversee multiple teams of technical engineers. He graduated from UNL with a BS in Criminal Justice, with Summa Cum Laude honors.
