Emary is quick to share credit for his accomplishments. “I would not have been able to accomplish what I have done without the hard work and help of other people,” he said. “I’m most excited about the attention this brings to Hornady and the affirmation that we are doing good things in the industry.”

Emary holds Bachelors of Science degrees in Physics and Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering from Bowling Green State Univ., and the Air Force Institute of Technology.
