CHANDLER, Ariz. — February 15, 2024 — VirTra, Inc. (Nasdaq: VTSI) (“VirTra” or the “Company”), a global provider of judgmental use of force training simulators, firearms training simulators for the law enforcement and military markets, has today announced that CEO John Givens was appointed Chairman of the Board for National Center for Simulation (NCS), an association of defense companies, government, academic, and modeling and simulations industry members.

Givens has been an executive committee member on the Board of Directors for NCS for 6 years and has held the secretary, treasurer, and co-Chair providing valuable experience and insight to its industry members. This position of Chair is a two-year term. In addition to his positions as CEO of VirTra, and previously President of Bohemia Interactive Simulations, Givens continues his mission to increase awareness and use of simulations across a broad spectrum of industries.

“This is an incredible honor, and I’m thankful for the chance to work with such talented people on this executive board and across this great industry,” said Givens about his position. “It continues to amaze me that when I started in this modeling and simulation industry, how little simulation was being utilized compared to today, where we see its use in our DoD sector and areas we never guessed would use simulation. I look forward to the future of this organization and extending the outreach even further.”

George Cheros, NCS president and CEO, added “we’re extremely proud of the quality of all our board members, and we’re excited to see John and the executive committee continue to lead NCS to new levels of excellence.” To view the current Board of Directors, visit this link here.
