Tommy Bryant
Director of Facilities, Oklahoma City Zoo
Tommy Bryant is the director of Facilities at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical garden. He has been with the zoo for ten years, where he has been strategically involved in six major projects, from design to completion, totaling somewhere around fifty million dollars. He started his career as a machinist in the agriculture industry working his way up to lead position. He was there for six years when another opportunity came open and he accepted a position as a machinist in the fine paper industry where he worked for six years working in tight tolerance production. Iscar Metals approached him as a factory representative assisting clients with problems and applications for many industries from aerospace to medical implants. After six years, he changed professions and entered into plant maintenance for a local hospital working closely with all staff to maintain buildings and systems in the facility. After a short two years here, he moved to Oklahoma City to take the position as Maintenance Manager for OU medical Center. Here he was responsible for the compliance to Joint Commission and all local and state health codes for three hospitals and two clinics. Upon leaving OU Medical Center he went to work for a local architectural firm as a construction manager, it was while working in this position he was approached about the position at Oklahoma City Zoo. He accepted this position and never looked back. Tommy has been a member of AZFA since he accepted the position at OKC.
