Director of Governmental Affairs and leading executive Dion Banks has invested and dedicated many personal hours in the local community. He served in the United States Army during Desert Storm and continues to serve and volunteer his time with many noteworthy causes.

Banks has even testified before the state legislature. Recently, he accompanied Governor O’Malley and a delegation of thirty other Maryland businesses, academia and community leaders on an economic development-based trip to Brazil.

Banks commented, “We are living in a world without borders. The only limitations that we have are the ones that we place on ourselves. To compete in this emerging global economy, it is important that we create environments for our younger generation that plays into U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity. Our goal should be to ensure a well-educated workforce which is critical to our nation’s future.” Dion has been part of the continually evolving manufacturing sector and latest environmental technologies.
