Kristen Holloway Querriera

Founder, Chariman of the Board Emeritus

Kristen grew up in Coatesville, Pennsylvania about an hour outside Philadelphia. In 1997, she graduated from Juniata College with dual degrees in International Business and German. She also spent a year abroad at the Fachhochschule Muenster in Germany studying business, and studied Mandarin Chinese for 8 years before working for a summer in Taiwan.

After founding and serving as President of the organization, Kristen has assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. A proud Army wife, Kristen now serves OTA from her home base.  With a successful career with PPG Industries, Inc. in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she has worked in Sales, Corporate Finance and Marketing, she is now focused on her most important initiative – being a mother. She is an alum of the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh.

In May of 2017, Kristen retired as CEO & Chairman of the Board.  We are grateful for her service to OTA and the brave troops and veterans we serve.
