Galvion, a world leader in innovative head protection systems and power management solutions, has announced the recent appointment of Sergeant Major of the Army (SMA) Daniel A. Dailey, U.S. Army retired, as a strategic consultant to the Galvion team.
SMA (retired) Dan Dailey, is a native of Palmerton, Pennsylvania. Dailey enlisted in the Army in 1989 as an 11B (infantryman). During his 30-year career, Dailey held every enlisted leadership position in the infantry. Dailey was sworn in as the 15th Sergeant Major of the Army on Jan. 30, 2015 and relinquished the position on Aug. 9, 2019.
In addition to four tours in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn, Dailey deployed in support of Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. He earned the Bronze Star with Valor for his leadership during the 4th Infantry Division’s two‐month Battle for Sadr City in 2008.
Dailey is a graduate of class 54 of the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy and the Command Sergeants Major Course. Dailey holds a Bachelor of Science (Summa Cum Laude) from Excelsior College.
SMA (retired) Dan Dailey said: “Galvion’s focus on active, performance-enhancing equipment –making the soldier faster, lighter and more connected – is the future of survivability. The team understands the soldier and is thinking not just about what they need today, but more importantly, what they will need tomorrow”.
“SMA (retired) Dailey’s pedigree speaks for itself,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Galvion. “We are incredibly fortunate to have him working with our Senior Leadership team, providing invaluable insight and expertise garnered from a distinguished career in the U.S. Military. Since joining us, we have learned first-hand that his career-long commitment to the survivability of the soldier, not to mention his overall core values, so closely align with what we work towards every day at Galvion. We are truly honored to have Dan on our team.”

Revision Military began by providing the very best in protective eyewear to military and tactical users in 2002. Stemming from an initial contract to provide 120,000 sets of Sawfly® ballistic spectacles to the Canadian Department of National Defence, the Company grew to be the leading supplier of protective eyewear not only to the U.S. but globally to countries including Germany, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark, among many others. Strategic investments and acquisitions allowed Revision to expand its capabilities and move into adjacent head and torso protective markets. The broadening of Revision’s portfolio shifted the business focus away from eyewear. In September 2019, the Company sold the protective eyewear business along with the Revision Military name. Under its new name – GALVION – the Company will honour its history by continuing to deliver best-in-class protective solutions, maintaining its track record and reputation for excellence, and striving to be innovative problem solvers.
Privately owned with ISO 9001:2015 certified facilities in Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire in the US, Montreal and Ottawa in Canada and Bristol in the UK, Galvion works proactively to solve the problems left unsolved by others.
