November 2016 – Continuously Improving Quality

The Omnicon Group has achieved re-certification to ISO 9001 and AS 9100 standards. The five-day comprehensive audit was conducted in August by PRI Registrar, an ANAB accredited third-party registrar. 

Omnicon’s scope of registration includes Reliability, Maintainability and Safety Engineering; Hardware, Software and Systems Engineering; Development of Special Test Equipment; Design, Development, and Manufacturing of products. 

This re-certification reinforces Omnicon’s commitment to improving our quality and safety standards. Charleen McCarrick, Omnicon’s Quality Manager affirms this by saying, “The Omnicon Group is committed to exceeding the needs of its customers by establishing a culture of quality through the implementation and continued improvement of our quality management system.” 


Karen has more than 30 years in business strategy, technology, and operations across various industries and markets, with more than half of her career at The Omnicon Group. Karen currently serves as Executive Vice President of Omnicon, where she provides strategic direction, overall leadership, and management for all programs and business development efforts. Her innovative and cutting-edge ideas over the years have helped customers reach their business goals. Her initiative in ensuring strong customer relationships is a driving force in Omnicon’s success, and is our customers’ greatest advocate with her unwavering commitment to client satisfaction. Throughout her leadership role changes and many responsibilities, Karen’s door is always open to work with her co-workers with compassion and patience.

As the only female currently on Omnicon’s Leadership Team, she is blazing a path to inspire more women to take on roles in previously male-dominated organizations. Having two adult children of her own, Karen has been especially motivated to work with high school and college students, aiding them in how to showcase and nurture their abilities to present their talents in the most professional way.

Karen is active in several charitable organizations, supporting causes that are close to her heart, among them: The National Marfan Foundation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and The American Cancer Society. Karen participates in many events sponsored by these organizations and spearheads fundraising activities throughout the year.

She earned a bachelor’s degree from Brooklyn College and resides in Manhasset, NY with her husband. Nothing gets in the way of Karen reaching her goals, and as she’s grown in her successes, she’s ensured those around her benefit as well. Whether she is working, teaching, or mentoring, Karen deserves to be recognized for all her hard work and commitment.
