Dan Perkins Brings Defense Industry, Military, and Entrepreneurial Expertise
Johnstown, PA, January 27, 2022 -- The Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) Board of Directors has elected Johnstown, PA, native Daniel T. Perkins as its newest board director.
Mr. Perkins demonstrated his entrepreneurial expertise by founding and leading two businesses in the region.

His professional background also includes service in the U.S. Marine Corps, where his positions included Marine Corps Liaison Officer to the United States Congress.
