Today we’d like to introduce you to Brian Reinhart from Bastian Solutions, Dallas.
Brian, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I graduated from the University of Louisville in 2008 with a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering. After a few years in the workforce I decided to go back to school and pursue my MBA, which I graduated with in 2012. I joined Bastian Solutions in 2013 as a Logistics Consultant with the software division in Louisville, Kentucky and after 3 years in that role I was approached with the opportunity to move to Dallas to manage the company’s expansion into the SW US. Bastian Solutions is the 3rd largest material handling systems integrator in the United States, and our growth into the booming DFW market was an absolute must. The new office in Farmers Branch is responsible for Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and parts of Colorado and Arkansas. My wife and I moved to Dallas last September to take on this new and exciting challenge.
Bastian Texas and Bastian Mobile Robotics (an R&D division we share an office with) have seen exponential growth in the past year. The office now houses 25 employees with a wide range of engineering specialties, and year over year revenues have increased 500%. I get to work with an amazing team of super talented and brilliant individuals daily that are just as driven as I am to help Bastian succeed in this new market.
Regarding the future – the sky really is the limit. As the business continues to grow our need for bright and talented individuals will only increase, and we’re very excited to be a staple for the community and city of Dallas for years to come.
