Mal Forys is the Executive Vice President and co-founder of Heroes Hired Manufacturing. He sometimes feels that his position at HHM was destiny.
Drafted into the U.S. Army in the late 1960's, Mal Forys reached the rank of Air Force Master Sergeant with 30 plus years combined service. His Assigments included serving as a U.S. Army Military Police Platoon Sergeant, Air Force Security Forces Assistant Training NCO, and toward the end of his career, the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Mal was reactivated for duty following 9/11 and served for two years, including deployment to Southwest Asia.
Not one to let any grass grow under his feet, Mal laid the foundation for a civilian career with Chrysler Corporation while still in uniform. He began his employment as a General Warehouseman and kept climbing the corporate ladder until he eventually became manager. Along the way he held positions as a Layout Inspector, Supervisor in the Service and Parts Division, Transmission Mechanic and Photographic Lab Technician. When he finally said "goodbye" to Chrysler in 2009, he had given 41 years of service.
Throughout his adult life, Mal has used his skills to support a multitude of service organizations, including the American Legion and Veterans of Modern Warfare Chapter 4. He served as President of the Air Force Securiy Forces Association Selfridge Chapter and as Chairman of the UAW Local 412 Chrysler Veterans Committee, which supports all of the military's present and past members.
Mal Believes that "...there is vast pool of untapped talent in our Service Connected Disabled Veterans. With their self-esteem restored, they will once again feel that they are an integral part of the work community. They will be proud of who they are and all they have accomplished."
Mal and his loving wife, Joan, Married in 2001 and reside in Macomb, Michigan.
