Chris O'Donnell

Chris O’Donnell, the Radians Product Manager for hearing protection, has over two decades of experience wearing a multitude of hats in sales, marketing, business development, and product design and development. His extensive safety knowledge in hearing protection allows him to develop and market innovative hearing protection devices that take advantage of today’s technology and science while meeting the strict safety standards that govern HPD’s.

According to O’Donnell, “Hearing loss is invisible, whereas other injuries at work are not. When you leave work, you will know if you have been cut by a sharp blade because you don’t cut yourself a little each day until you start bleeding months and years later. With hearing, it is the opposite. Repeated exposure to loud noises over a period of time deteriorates your hearing, until you realize one day you are hard of hearing.”

O’Donnell has a Bachelor of Science from the New York Institute of Technology and an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration from Suffolk Community College.
