He also served 13 years as a fast-attack submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. Regnier also spent a considerable portion of his childhood on the family farm in Nebraska, allowing him to couple his passion for agriculture and skills in technology.

Regnier says, "It's an honor to lead this team of talented and dedicated professionals to achieve ZAG's mission of 'Enabling Our Clients to Succeed'. New technologies and the evolving needs of the businesses we support are what make our work challenging and engaging, but it's ZAG's people and our clients that make our work meaningful and rewarding.
