After two years, he returned to the Reno area joining Arrow Electronics in 1998. During the seven years at Arrow, he worked in many different rolls including production supervisor, lean manufacturing manager and production manager. Moon eventually moved his family back to Fallon and worked for Amazon.com, First Independent Bank and the WCW Corporation.
