Edward J. Sheehan, Jr.

President and CEO

Concurrent Technologies Corporation

Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., has been the President of Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) since 2008 and its CEO since 2009. Sheehan also serves as the president of the CTC Foundation.

As a leader in manufacturing in the region, Sheehan has seen the industry’s ability to adapt first hand.

“Our community’s ability to transform itself over the years and adapt as necessary is one of our region’s strengths. The move from manufacturing-centric to a balanced and diverse technology-centric economy was essential when America’s coal and steel industries experienced such significant downturns several decades ago. Our community is very resilient and responsive,” he said.

He is on the board of directors for a number of Pennsylvania-based economic development, public service and charitable organizations in a volunteer capacity. Sheehan serves as a director of 1st Summit Bank in Johnstown, Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, Western Region Advisory Board of Highmark, Inc. and a member of the Council of the Pennsylvania Society. He is also a member of the advisory board at University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and a board of trustee at Mount Aloysius College.

Sheehan believes that “if a project is undertaken it must be led and supported throughout its life by its leader. If it is no longer important to the leader, eventually it won’t be important to anyone. Clarity and commitment are critical to the success of any undertaking.”

Sheehan and his wife, Julie, have four daughters and one son-in-law.
