Marine Combat Veterans Who Served Together And Fought The Good Fight



    Derek Porter

    Chief Executive Officer

    Derek has always dreamed of starting a company like Dynamic Warrior's as far back as his time in the U.S. Marine Corps while hooking and jabbing as a Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team (F.A.S.T.) operator. Derek's deployments to Iraq gave him a new level of drive to serve in a different capacity in aiding veterans, which ultimately led to starting Dynamic Warriors to tackle the barrage ailments that veterans suffer from, like pain, sleep and PTSD conditions. 
    Now, a serial entrepreneur, Derek's focus is to expand Dynamic Warriors to help other like-minded individuals such as all patriots, athletes and many others who are searching for alternative homeopathic relief from their conditions. Prior to Dynamic Warriors, Derek spent years in Southern California in the executive protection industry, after moving back to Colorado (his true homeland) he started a security company; Security Grade Protective Services (now operating as Helix Cannabis Security) before he accepted a buyout from Helix TCS, Inc. Derek was known for pioneering the remote video surveillance services to the legal Cannabis industry, which was his introduction onto the Hemp side of the fence in 2012. Derek currently has a new surveillance company called Resolution Security operating in Colorado Springs. He lives with his wife Gina and daughter Raela in the Southern Denver Metro area with their two Lima Bravo's (life buddies) Metal and Grimm. 
    Derek holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and a Master of Science in Security Management, along with dozens of certifications in security and competitive intelligence. Derek is a proud philanthropist, fitness & outdoor junkie, firearms enthusiast, and an avid Cannabidiol user.

    BJ Ganem

    - leads the organization and coordination of all administrative functions for Sierra Delta. BJ is a natural leader whose personal experience with military-to-civilian transition influences his insight into what support veterans need when returning home.

    Prior to becoming CEO of Sierra Delta in 2017, BJ's journey led him from the United States Marine Corps to nonprofit organizations such as the Semper Fi Fund. BJ joined the Marine Corps in 1996. At the end of his first enlistment, BJ left active duty but stayed in the ready reserves. While on active duty, BJ worked as a District Sales Manager for Kraft Foods. In May 2004, BJ's unit was called to serve in support of operations in Iraq.

    On November 25, 2004, the vehicle BJ was driving was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device (I.E.D.). The attack left BJ with an amputated left leg, mild brain injury, and shrapnel wounds. Above all, the attack left BJ with the unprepared realization he would no longer be a Marine Infantryman in the fight for freedom.

    After navigating the landscape of transition, BJ found his purpose in helping other men and women transition into society. He became an outspoken advocate for veterans and left a 10-year career at Kraft Foods to pursue helping veterans. BJ worked for Semper Fi Fund as an accredited Veteran Service Officer. This role allowed him to assist veterans by helping secure their federal and state benefits. BJ also ensured veterans received accurate discharges.

    BJ graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.A. in Social Work with an emphasis on military life. Apart from his duties at Sierra Delta, he is captain of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football team (WWAFT). The father of four children, BJ and his wife Sarah live in Reedsburg, WI with their family and two English bulldogs.

     

    This Logo Is More Than You Think

    This logo we designed for the silent warriors in all of us. It doesn't mean that you have to be in combat or even be a Veteran. It stands for everything that is great about this country. 

    First the "D". It was designed by the single thing that kept us safe as a nation and in combat. It is designed after the M16 trigger housing. 

    Second, the "W". This was designed with the front sight post of an M16 but also the "W" is moving forward. This means that we always need to "Move Forward" and progress as people. We need to constantly be looking out for one another and choose growth for happiness and fulfillment. 

    Not just a "DW" now is it?
