General Manager

When Arita started down the Fire Protection industry path more than 20 years ago she was unsure where it would lead, but took the leap of faith with the hope of making a career for herself. She started as an Office Manager in Ahern's Madison location which gave her a variety of exposure to the business, while also leading a team. Her breath of responsibility quickly grew which led her to the position of Fire Protection Operations Manager and now the General Manager of Ahern Fire Protections Des Moines, IA location. As Arita reflects on her journey she notes, “ I continue to value and appreciate my mentors and their willingness to share knowledge and counsel along the way, as they have been a vital part of my success at Ahern”
