Steve Novakovich Joins Garrett Metal Detectors as CEO

Garland, Texas (January 19, 2018) — Garrett Metal Detectors, a worldwide leading manufacturer of security, sport, and countermine metal detection products, has announced that Steve Novakovich has joined the company as their new Chief Executive Officer.

“We felt that it was the right time to add to Garrett’s management team,” said Eleanor Garrett, the current President of Garrett Metal Detectors. In 1964, Mrs. Garrett co-founded the company from her Garland, Texas home with her late husband, Charles Garrett, who was considered to be one of the pioneers of hobby metal detecting.

“Steve Novakovich brings more than 30 years of experience to us from all facets of the business world,” Mrs. Garrett added. “Adding Steve to our existing core management team, I feel secure that the company Charles and I founded 54 years ago will remain strong for its next 54 years.” Novakovich comes to Garrett from his former role as President and CEO of Graco Supply Company, an aerospace chemical distributor. He has also worked in the oil and gas industry as an engineer, and in various management roles with companies that include Exxon Company USA, Texas Instruments, and Texas Air Composites. Novakovich has two Masters degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and he earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Economics from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

“Steve Novakovich brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Garrett team in sales, distribution, accounting, manufacturing, and engineering departments,” said Vaughan Garrett, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. Bob Podhrasky, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Garrett, added, “We look forward to working with Steve to continue the level of customer service and product performance that has made this company so successful.”

      Discover Magazine

      Some of you might remember a publication called "Discover" that White's Electronics used to publish. It featured customer finds, treasure stories, and all-around good info on metal detecting. Back in the 90's we stopped making it, much to the disappointment of some of our long-time customers.
      Well... we realized missed it too! So we're proud to announce the re-introduction of Discover magazine. As a part of our mailing list you have exclusive access to a free digital copy, which you can read online, print out, and share as you see fit. Get your free copy here. We'll try and send one out every 2 months.
      Thanks for supporting an American brand, and know that we will always have your back as a valued customer. This publication is just one small thing we can do to show our appreciation!

      has anyone heard about when the 2nd wave of shipments is coming? Seems like all the folks that were going to get one on round 1 have all gotten their detectors. When can we expect round 2 to happen?

      I didn’t see any Makro or Nokta metal detectors and that is what I was hoping to see. I guess the problem is that lack of dealers in the USA.
      Just maybe over time this will not be the case. I think it would be good for the customer if we had more competition. It would have the effect of a better product and a better competitive price.
      Don’t miss understand me I don’t want something for nothing. I’m willing to pay the price for top quality detectors.
